Co-Curricular Programme

LIS Co-Curricular Programme

The co-curricular programme is designed to engage and extend our diverse community of learners in an enjoyable, safe and supportive environment.

We strive to empower and inspire students by providing balanced opportunities to support and extend the curriculum through creativity, activity and service. The programme enhances our sense of community through building sustainable and positive relationships within LIS, Angolan and global contexts. Student leadership is embraced in the programme to foster compassionate and socially responsible students who are confident to thrive in the world.

The co-curricular programme encompasses four aspects at LIS: after school activities, the arts, sports and outdoor education.  Each of these aspects is focused on developing student interest while providing further opportunities to be committed, challenged and excel, as students progress through the school.

  • A diverse community of learners, committed to fostering compassionate, confident and socially responsible individuals who thrive in the world.

    Take three ambitious year 12 LIS students, a great medical cause and the highest mountain on the African continent and you have a recipe for a truly inspiring life experience. Our ‘Trek for Meds’ team including Molly, Nabeeha and Denise successfully planned and completed an expedition to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa! Their collective goal was to raise money to buy malaria preventative medicine and tests to distribute to families in rural areas of Angola. Malaria is a recurring cause of child mortality in Angola. The Trek for Meds team received tremendous encouragement and recognition from their immediate and global communities. The overwhelming support helped the team to conquer the mountain and smash their original fundraising goal of USD3,000. This is service leadership in its purest form. In the spirit of our mission statement, I am confident this amazing story will inspire many other students to find a unique way to ‘thrive in the world’.
