Homework time: students work with teachers to complete their daily homework and revise what they have learned throghout the day. The main aim is establishing and improving their knowledge as well as completing their daily obligations. This is a priority in all classes.
Outdoor games: great for students of all ages. Not only do children learn from exploring what is around them, but they also get into the much needed physical activity. The most common sports are: football, dodgeball, basketball, volleyball, table tennis and badminton.
Reading time: usually taking place in the school library, it helps to encourage younger readers to enjoy reading in a friendly, informal setting. After-school reading time provides an opportunity for children to build and improve reading skills. They can also read in the classroom, taking books from classroom libraries or their own books when they have free time.

They also devolop creativity in different directions and in many artistic areas including writing, painting, drawing, designing, cooking, playing instruments, singing, acting etc.
