Teams and Clubs

Our students enjoy many sports activities such as soccer, cross-country running, borden ball, triple ball, intramural games, and track and field. In addition, the students can join the train club, primary or junior choir, the ukulele club, the Social Service club, the dance club, the coding club and the chess club. The activities can vary from year to year and depend on the interest and commitment of students, staff, and parents.
