Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities provide students with opportunities to explore their interests. Here are some examples of extracurricular activities Secondary students have been offered in the past:

After School Programs

The Secondary School After School Programme is designed to provide quality training in a variety of well-structured activities. The goal is to balance a challenging academic program with opportunities for self-exploration. Some of the ASPs at the Secondary Level are:

  • Study Skills
  • Robotics
  • Soccer
  • Graphics Design
  • 3D Design & Printing
  • Basketball
  • Volleyball
  • Chess Club
  • Model United Nations
  • Programming
  • School Band
  • Running Club
  • Exchange Activities

    Horizon has implemented a number of extra-curricular programmes around our community to promote students’ holistic development. We have established exchange activities with neighbouring schools to enhance students’ development, both socially and culturally. We are able to offer these types of programmes to Horizon students because we have built solid relations with the surrounding community.

    Private Schools

    Horizon runs exchange activities with a neighbouring private school where the members of both communities have a chance to learn about each other. The two schools have participated in:

  • Japanese Tea Ceremony
  • School Camps
  • Japanese Calligraphy
  • International Festivals
  • Japanese Language Classes
  • Japanese Flower Arrangement
  • English Language Classes
  • English Summer School
  • Public Schools
    Horizon also runs exchange activities, with public high schools in the area. Our students have enjoyed the multilingual setting of the following club activities:

  • Basketball
  • Football
  • Tennis
  • Saturday School

    As part of the extracurricular program, HJIS offers Saturday classes for Primary and Secondary students. The aim of Saturday School is to help students relieve their stress while still learning and developing skills.

    We currently offer the following classes:

    Primary School

  • Art and Design
  • In Art and Design classes, students develop their creativity

  • ICT
  • In ICT classes, students learn basic programming skills

    Secondary School

    Secondary students are offered a variety of classes during the year. Grade 10 and 11 students focus on SAT preparation, and Grade 12 students work on their Internal Assessments and college applications. Specialist teachers organize supplemental classes for students who may want or need additional help. Various CAS activities take place throughout the year, and some ASPs and clubs (like Robotics) continue their activities on Saturdays as well.
