In modern day education systems, there is an after – school activity designed for just about every type of interest or hobby.
Extra-curricular activities are extremely important in helping students develop lifelong good working habits. Students involved in extra-curricular activities learn how to work as part of a team towards a common goal, such as winning the football game. Studies have shown that students involved in extra-curricular activities are more likely to study more diligently, earn better grades, and stay out of troublesome situations in high school.
At AMBPS our aim is for every student to participate in at least one activity beyond the classroom environment. Our sporting activities are held from Monday to Thursday from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m.
Monday : Soccer, Basketball & Table Tennis
Tuesday : Cricket & Volleyball
Wednesday : Swimming, Badminton, Cubs & Karate
Thursday : Swimming
Friday : Karate & Scouts
One way to enhance a student’s school experience is through School clubs. At AMBPS, the themes of the clubs are set as under:
- Quiz Club
- Bookworm Club
- Board Games : Scrabble, Math fun, etc.
- Kiswahili Drama Club
- Qur’an Hifz/Arabic
- Arts and Crafts (knitting, drawing, etc.)
- Environmental Club
- Young Journalist Club
Each student chooses a club of his interest and spends an hour of fun on every Friday from 8:00 – 9:00 am.
The Primary and Secondary schools runs a House system; the four houses are named after colours, Blue, Green, Red and Yellow. On entry to School, each student is assigned a house (the same as an older sibling if requested) and remains a member of this house throughout their years at Al Muntazir.
House points are awarded in class for effort, attitude and achievement and for competitions run at various points during the year, e.g. Sports Day, quiz competitions, Maths challenges etc. The house system fosters good relationships between children in different year groups and encourages a sense of working together and responsibility.
Each year, the primary schools’ House Captains are selected from among the grades 6 or 7 pupils.
