Extracurricular activities that FIS is about to launch will be organized in accordance with the same principles as the Core Curriculum of the school. So, it is a great chance for pupils from other schools to come and experience our methods.
Here is the list of Extracurricular Activities at FIS:
1) Arts and Crafts - Your child will improve her/his creative skills, as their brain will begin to develop the areas associated with creativity the more s/he is exposed to and works with creative things. Painting and drawing can also help develop problem-solving skills. Children learn about shapes, the three-dimensional world and patience to see a good end result.
2) Board Games - There are many scientific types of research claiming that board games are very good for our mental health. Alongside other benefits, board games have Memory formation and cognitive skills. The areas of the brain that are responsible for complex thought and memory formation are the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex. Playing board games help children develop their logic and reasoning skills, improve critical thinking and boost spatial reasoning. The ability to concentrate and focus for a longer period of time is also developed with just playing board games.
