Extra Curricular Activities (ECAs)

At LEH International School Foshan, we believe in nurturing well-rounded individuals who not only excel in the classroom but also thrive outside it. Our Extra-Curricular Activities (ECA) programme plays a pivotal role in achieving this goal, providing students with a platform to explore their passions, develop new skills, and embrace personal growth. They are allowed 2 hours of ECA time each school day, ensuring they have ample time to pursue their interests and develop essential skills. The activities regularly change every term to provide a constantly evolving array of options, ensuring students have a dynamic and relevant range of opportunities.

ECA in Prep School: Igniting the Spark

For our Prep School students, the ECA programme is an exciting gateway to personal exploration starting at a young age. They have the freedom to choose an ECA that aligns with their interests and aspirations. Whether it's a passion for the arts, languages, sports, drama, or music, we offer a variety of options that allow them to delve into what interests them the most.

In addition to these options, we offer the Homework Club every day, a teacher-supervised session where students can review their daily lessons and work on homework. This ensures that our young learners maintain a balance between academics and extracurricular pursuits, helping them become well-rounded individuals.

A broader spectrum of activities is made available to cater to their diverse preferences and passions. Our Secondary School students can choose from a wide range of activities, including but not limited to:

Visual Art

From ceramics to printmaking and textiles, we provide a creative outlet for budding artists to express themselves.

Unleashing Potentia, Nurturing Excellence

At LEH Foshan, we view our Extra-Curricular Activities programme as an integral part of a student's educational journey. It is not merely a series of leisure activities but a dynamic platform for students to explore, discover, and develop. It empowers them with essential life skills, fostering teamwork, leadership, time management, and self-confidence. When embracing new activities, their courage is recommendable and reflects our school motto “Hope Favours the Bold.” This motto highlights the importance of courage and taking on new challenges, illustrating that our students embody boldness, resilience, and an unwavering pursuit of excellence.

Moreover, the bonds forged through ECAs often last a lifetime, as students collaborate, compete, and create memorable experiences together. It's not just about academic excellence; it's about nurturing well-rounded individuals who are prepared for the challenges of the real world.

The ECA programme at LEH Foshan is more than just an extra-curricular activity; it's a gateway to personal growth and a rich tapestry of experiences that enhance a student's journey through school and beyond.
