Clubs and Activities

Lower School Clubs & Activities

The Lower School ATAC program is open to students in Grades 1-5 (included in tuition) with After School Care available for all students in Early ZIS to Grade 5 (for a fee). The program offers activities, athletics (competitive and non-competitive), leadership opportunities and private mother tongue language clubs (please see tab below "Lower School activities").

To allow for a greater focus on age/developmentally-appropriate activities, students in:

  • Grade 1-3 will be able to choose up to two activities each season
  • Grade 4-5 will be able to choose up to three activities each season
  • mother tongue language clubs are counted as an additional activity.

There are opportunities for parents to view activities on offer and register their children online via PowerSchool prior to each season. Dates to register will be communicated through My ZIS Weekly News in the Community portal.

As we continue to refine the Lower School Athletics and Activities program (ATAC) there will be a number of changes and additions for the 2019/20 school year.

In 2019/20 the Lower School ATAC program will move from four terms to three seasons - fall, winter and spring. This will bring alignment with the Middle and Upper School, will result in an extended focus on each activity, and will reduce the number of registration periods.
