LIFE AT ATLANTIC
One of the several advantages of life in boarding school is the opportunity to participate in a wide range of extra – curricular activities. Activities include; Sporting, Arts, Science, Music, Service, Cultural and Leadership.
There are not many students who have been through Atlantic Hall, whose interests have not been aroused by one or more of these activities. The participation in these activities, with the consequent rise in confidence, has the inevitable, positive effect on a student’s overall progress and achievements.
Teachers and House staff enthusiastically offer their time to these activities which are complementary and enriching to the academic curriculum. Each student selects 3 activities to participate in during the week and also on weekends. All students must select at least one sport and additional practice sessions are done for students who are in a House or the School team. Each term allows for a level of diversity in and changes to the programme, and the students are encouraged to participate in at least one new activity each term, to try out something they wouldn’t typically consider.
These activities are especially important in teaching the benefits of teamwork, co-operation & involvement.
