Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities are carried out during school hours. These activities have the objective of developing creativity.

Appearing to play an instrument makes the motor, visual and auditory part work at the same time. This allows neuroplasticity, agility and creativity to gain. We finish seeing that these benefits move afterwards in the academic aspect. Students increase mental agility in mathematics for example.

At Santa Clara International School, students have the opportunity to learn to play an instrument: piano, violin, cello, drums, guitar or ukulele.

Several studies show that children who learn a new language at an early age develop cognitive abilities, such as increase of skills in problem solving, creativity, and respect to others cultures.

Another of the extracurricular activities that can be done at Santa Clara International School is to learn to speak a new language.  Chinese or German are extracurricular. The main curricular languages are English and Spanish. French is curricular throughout Primary Stage.

All of our teachers are native in the language that they teach. This makes an authentic learning experience four our students.

Through playing different sports our students develop flexibility, core stability, strength, stamina, power and speed, as well as improve their all-round physical conditioning. They develop important skills like problem-solving, communication, team work and working independently, which are all highly valued attributes in sport and life. It also helps build competence, confidence, connection, creativity, character and caring.

At Santa Clara International School Barcelona, our students can play different sports such as Tennis, Football, Basketball, Hockey, Volleyball, Martial Arts…

Chess is a universal game, knowing no boundaries of age, gender, faith, ethnicity or disability, that promotes key intellectual skills such as problem solving, logical thinking, pattern recognition and concentration.

At Santa Clara International School, students play chess everyday because it fosters intellectual character. Its cerebral reputation boosts self-esteem and gives children ‘grit’ – the tenacity to cope with adversity – which helps them grow into rounded and employable individuals. It does this by teaching children how to lose and how to win gracefully, to think ahead and foresee the consequences of their actions.
