Good education must encompass more than the standard academic subjects. The Avicenna school provide a range of Extra -curricular activities as part of the timetable, appropriate to the ages of the students.
Physical Education and Games
The Avicenna School places great importance on sports in the curriculum, and of course it is now universally accepted as being an integral part of an all-round education. We are intensifying our efforts to further promote sports beyond what is already in place. Physical education is part of the regular timetable for all students up to Class VIII and the games played do depend to some extent on the physical environment of the school. However, where the school grounds do not offer enough space, the school makes then makes arrangements for games to be played at local playgrounds.
Inter school and Intra School Competitions.
Athletics, cricket, table tennis, badminton, debating and quiz competitions are annual events and are held in different regions by rotation. They provide an opportunity for students to display and develop their skills and to meet their contemporaries from the Avicenna school in other parts of the city.
The Avicenna School organizes outings and field trips at intervals throughout the year to places of interest and educational value. These places are chosen for their suitability for the age of the children concerned. Apart from the interest they arouse, they are of value in reinforcing work done in school.
All Avicenna schools produce regular newsletters. Their main purpose is to keep parents informed of current activities and forthcoming events at each school. The production of school magazines allows senior students to become familiar with various aspects of publishing, whether as writers or editors. Magazines have both English and Urdu sections and students of all ages are encouraged to contribute to them.
