Extracurricular

An integral part of a school’s philosophy and values is Personal, Social and Health Education of every child. Teachers at The British International School in Ukraine aim to equip their students with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe, informed decisions. Using the skills of working in groups, listening to others, and enabling people to have a voice whether orally or in writing the students develop empathy for others and an understanding of themselves.

In addition to the PE curriculum, The British International School in Ukraine offers a range of extra-curricular sporting activities. These might include football, basketball, tag rugby, gymnastics and athletics. Regular inter-house sporting tournaments are held, as well as matches against other schools in Kiev.

Being an international school in Ukraine we are acutely aware of the rich cultural background of our host country. We seek to enrich our understanding of its history and how that is celebrated through regular assemblies and other organised school events. Further to this we ensure our international diversity is explored and developed through events that bring the school together such as the United Nations International Day. Other cultural experiences are shared through the curriculum with the children having the opportunity to talk about their personal cultures with others.

Young people at The British International School in Ukraine are given meaningful opportunities to participate in the governance of the school community through serving on the Student Council. They will be able to develop their personal styles of leadership, learn to cooperate with others, formulate reasoned arguments and undertake a range of clerical responsibilities. This way they prepare  to become active and informed citizens of the International communities in which they live.
