Extra-Curricular Activities at Halcyon London International School

Extra-curricular Activities

Introduction

At Halcyon, we recognise that nurturing students’ passions and interests is the key to their engagement in the classroom.

Our students have a varied list of options to engage in before, after, and during school. Our Extra-Curricular Activities also include options aimed at bolstering all our students’ university applications, providing further choices to engage in community service, to build civic skills, to explore specific career-related programmes, and to be creative or active.

We also encourage our students to design, promote and run their own clubs, nurturing their trust in us and actively encouraging them to hold responsibility for their choices in education. Secure in the knowledge that Halcyon advocates for their individual interests, our students are happy and motivated to learn.

Model United Nations

Halcyon is proud to host a passionate and active Model United Nations team. Our young diplomats brought their analytical and debating skills, and awareness of global issues to international conferences such as MUNISH (Model United Nations at the International School of the Hague). During our last trip to MUNISH, Boet and Stella (Grade 10) were nominated as two of 17 ‘Best Delegates’ – an incredible achievement, given that over 1200 students attended the event.

Our mixed-grade MUN team enjoys the considerable responsibility of hosting Halcyon’s annual student-led MUN Conference. Handling visitor invitations, organising resolution topics and welcoming guest speakers, the MUN team enjoys the challenge of debating and sharing knowledge with visitors from local independent and state schools across this two-day event.

Sports Success

In their Spring 2020 inter-school tournament, the Senior Boys’ Football Team won four out of five of their group games! Omar (Grade 12) came second for Player of the Tournament, and Halcyon won the Sportsmanship trophy. Halcyon is proud to maintain an excellent reputation for fair play.

The Senior Girls’ Football team equally delivered a fantastic performance throughout the tournament, reaching the final and placing second overall. Alba (Grade 12) received the Player of the Tournament Award, demonstrating sportsmanship, teamwork and excellence to our local school community.
