Activities, which comprise of sports, extracurricular and co-curricular activities and after school languages, are offered across three seasons each school year to students from Grade 1 to 12.
Included in our extra curricular offerings are a range of mother tongue and language acquisition classes, which run after school. These classes provide students with an opportunity to support their mother tongue skills, or to learn an additional language that is not included in the regular curriculum. Language classes are a paid service, and are run by independent providers.
We also provide our students with a wide range of opportunities for sporting development, both recreationally and competitively, throughout the school year. Each campus has its own representative teams, which compete in the ACSIS (Athletic Conference of Singapore International Schools) league. Through ACSIS sports, students represent CIS, competing against other international schools in age-based teams.
Competitive and recreational sports are offered across three seasons, while some community sports, organised by independent providers, run all school year. Swimming (Lakeside only) is year-long competitive activity, with registration and trials conducted twice yearly.
With the exception of Primary co-curricular activities, students register for most activities via our online system in My.CIS. Registration for competitive sports is an indication of interest, with students proceeding to tryouts in most instances. Parents are able to view their child’s activity timetables in the registration system or My.CIS.
