Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs)

Co-Curricular Activities (CCA)


Our Wider Life provision gives our students access to a diverse and inclusive co-curricular programme, as well as ample opportunities for outdoor education and community service.

GIS offers an exceptional programme of Co-Curricular Activities (CCA). One of the largest programmes in South-East Asia, the CCA schedule includes over 150 different activities and clubs across four key areas: Global Citizenship; Creative; Community Service and Physical Performance. Activities run during lunchtimes and after school.

GIS also offers many academic and cultural opportunities for Early Years students right up to Year 13. From Coding to French cooking club, Hip Hop Dance to Public Speaking, we offer students a broad range of co-curricular opportunities to enrich and enhance their learning and wellbeing. MUN (Model United Nations) is a particularly popular CCA at GIS and the school bi-annually hosts the KLMUN (Kuala Lumpur Modern United Nations). 

For older students, we are able to offer some very specialist programmes such as our STEP CCA aimed specifically at female students interested in studying STEM subjects at university level. We also offer a very successful Oxbridge CCA that supports students interested in gaining entry to Oxford and Cambridge universities. 

Activities are published at the start of term and families can sign up to five activities per term utilising our online web-based portal.

Sport plays an important role in GIS’ culture and ethos. Historically, GISKL has an outstanding overall record of achievement within KL and beyond.

While winning is important, it is our mission to get as many students as possible involved and enjoying sports through our CCA, Inter-house, Academy and Dragons programme.
