At GKA we are aware that to develop a total child, extra curricular activities are of great importance.
We have a strong bias for co-curriculum activities, which are like stimulants and helpful to the academic, intellectual and physical development of the pupils. That is why we operate a wide range of cultural activities and clubs in the school. These activities include:
Home makers club: Teaches different aspects of home management, clothing and textile, food and nutrition, knitting, crocheting, sewing, bead making, cooking, craft works and etiquette. The pupils are charged for this
Red Cross: The members will learn the use of items used in fist aid, minor wound dressing. We can discuss with an official of the Red-Cross society who will be available to instruct the pupils on this.
Ballet: Children are taught ballet dance. We can get an external instructor to handle this. The pupils are charged for this.
Chess and Scrabble club: Research shows that there is a strong correlation between learning to play chess and academic achievement, especially in Mathematics and non-verbal reasoning ability.
