St David’s College is delighted to announce we have been shortlisted for an Independent Schools Association Award for excellence in extra-curricular activities.
The ISA Awards is an annual event that celebrates success in 474 independent schools from across the globe.
The Awards cover everything from Early Years provision, to innovation in Performing Arts or STEM.
Deputy head Steve Delaney said: “We are thrilled to have made it into the final shortlist for this prestigious ISA award.
“We’ve long believed as a school to offer a huge array of extra-curricular activities creates a more well-rounded and interesting person, which bodes well for the future.”
“To have lots to say in interviews about yourself when trying to get into a college or get that dream job can only be a good thing.”
He continued: “For example, how many teenagers can say they’ve been husky sledging in the Arctic Circle, or been ice climbing in Norway? It becomes a talking point.”
“Extra-curricular activities develop skills and confidence. I’ve seen countless children come to us at first lacking in confidence, but they soon blossom at St David’s and a lot of it has to do with the skills they develop outside the classroom.”
Mr Delaney added: “They learn how to collaborate on things, learn how to be resilient and independent.”
Amongst the huge raft of activities SDC has to offer includes yoga, pottery, cookery classes, 4X4 driving, Air fix club, dance and a new hit has been metal detecting. Some Victorian half-pennies were discovered on the Battlements just the other day….
The ISA Awards are taking place on November 9 in Coventry. Come on SDC!
