“Extracurricular activities are those aimed at promoting the centre’s openness to its environment and at ensuring the pupils’ all-round education. They are carried out outside school hours, are voluntary for the pupils and seek the active involvement of the whole educational community”.
The offer of extracurricular activities is aimed at stimulating the pupils’ artistic ability, motor coordination, intellectual capacity and their integral development as a person.
Highlands School Barcelona has been organising paddle tennis tournaments for the families and students of the school since 2012. The aim of these tournaments is to involve families in school life, promoting family life at school, one of our fundamental points; and values through sport such as respect, teamwork, perseverance, effort…
To date we have held five tournaments and participation is increasing all the time. In addition, during the day we also organise various activities for children, games, barbecue and a raffle. Everything is designed to enjoy a family and sporting day to the fullest.
We hope that the following tournaments will be as successful as the previous ones!
Highlands School Barcelona organises several trips to the snow during the school year: one with the pupils of the school and another with the families of the school, so that they too can experience the Highlands spirit.
In order to encourage companionship and group bonding, Highlands School Barcelona also organises school skiing trips, in which the pupils enjoy a weekend in the snow. During these days, our pupils have daily ski lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced skiers. In the afternoons, different recreational activities are prepared for them in order to encourage teamwork and a good atmosphere. In this way, we encourage a competitive spirit, daily self-improvement and sport, which is very important in our school.
