KKIS – Co – Curricular activity
In keeping with our Mission, Vision and Values, KKIS recognizes Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) as an integral part of the school curriculum. Co-curricular activities play a vital role in holistic development of a child. They are significant for enriching students on an emotional, cognitive, physical, and social level, also act as a catalyst for the promotion of national integration, coexistence, cultural values, and general health and well-being.
At KKIS we strongly believe in overall personality development of a student and have a wide range of CCAs (co-curricular activities) from Cooking without Fire to STEM activities, from Green Fingers to Origami and much more. CCAs and academics both complement each other to develop a well-rounded student with advanced social skills. Keeping this in mind. KKIS opens the doors of opportunity to include diverse activities. Co-curricular activities (CCAs) are such areas where the list of interests is wide. Our students are given the opportunity to explore all the options to determine where their interest lies.
Our CCAs have a defined curriculum. CCA classes will be scheduled once a week. CCA class will be block classes of an hour duration. All students will continue the same CCA for four weeks but different variety of activities and will then move to the next CCA which will also be continued for four weeks. This way, the students get an opportunity to explore all the CCA options and identify where their interest lies.
KKIS has an array of CCA activities for the benefit of our students.
