Co-Curricular Activities

Co-Curricular Enrichment at AGSB In school this week we have been highlighting the benefits of co-curricular enrichment in Assemblies and through ‘Thought For The Week’. Co-curricular enrichment is a very important aspect of life in any school, but especially here at AGSB.

I recently completed an audit of what opportunities we have at AGSB and I hope you agree, the findings were very impressive. We are proud to be able to offer a vast variety and volume of provision.

There are so many benefits of Co-curricular engagement to the pupils. Below are listed some of the key areas; Confidence, Teamwork, Responsibility, Leadership, Accountability, Diligence, Respect, Inclusivity (Race, Religion, Gender, Sexual Orientation), Active citizens, Social cohesion, and Morality. Developing British Values of democracy, liberty, tolerance, law abiding.

I would encourage pupils to have discussions at home to reflect upon their involvement in co-curricular enrichment and aspire to increase their involvement. Try something new, push comfort zones, meet new like-minded people, and grow as an individual.
