Lower School Clubs & Activities

The Lower School co-curricular program is open to students in Kindergarten to Grade 5 (activities are included in the tuition fees). The program offers activities, athletics (competitive and non-competitive), leadership opportunities, as well as private mother tongue language clubs (please see tab below "Lower School activities").

Clubs and activities are offered over three seasons - fall, winter and spring.

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

  • Kindergarten can choose one activity in the spring season
  • Grade 1-3 can choose one activity each season
  • Grade 4-5 can choose up to two 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 prior to each season. Dates to register will be communicated through My ZIS Weekly News in the Community Portal.
