“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” Arthur Ashe
There are many schools out there today that provide a plethora of extracurricular activities. At the Royal Docks Community School some occur before school, some after school, and a few take place on the weekends. With the help and support from the parents and guardians these activities bring with them numerous benefits to help individuals now, and in the future. Allowing your child to get involved in extracurricular activities at school is a wise choice, and it can be very important in helping them to develop many working skills, people skills, a stronger mind, training in professional skills, better time management and a deeper exploration of interests. Ultimately, extracurricular activities can help students succeed in much more than just their academic endeavours.
The Royal Docks Community School prides itself on the numerous amount of opportunities offered to help extend thoughts, intelligence, physical skills and all round durability in preparation for life after the Royal Docks. Coupled with the schools all inclusive policy every department offers a wide range of extracurricular activities so pupils are never left unchallenged or underprepared.
