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.

    George’s journey from Angola to the Republic of Congo did not have a happy beginning.  George, a chimpanzee, was stolen from his forest home and family for the illegal pet trade.  Thankfully, he was found by Dr. Cristina of Casa dos Animais. He became part of the LIS community and was cared for by Ms. Dalene in the LIS Accounting Department.  Funds raised by LIS students in Year 6 paid for George’s travel cage, flight and customs cost to transport him to the Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo.  Today, George is being looked after in a safe place by a professional caretaker, with whom he shares a close bond. In the future, George will be integrated with other chimpanzees of similar ages.  Over time, he will gain friends and become an important part of the group. This is a happy ending for George and his friends at LIS.
