Beyond Academics

At CIS, Haridwar, we focus on co-scholastic activities for the all-round development of students. Our emerging student profile (ESP) put equal emphasis on knowledge, life skills and values. CIS goes beyond academics to ensure that we provide students sufficient opportunities for achieving the ESP.

Sports Activities

Swami Vivekananda famously said, “Be strong, my young friends; that is my advice to you. You will be nearer to Heaven through football than through the study of the Gita.” Age-appropriate development of the body helps nurture a sound mind. At CIS, we offer various options for sports. In sports, we recommend Football, Basketball, Volleyball, Lawn Tennis, Badminton, Splashpool , Skating, Cricket and *Swimming (apart from indoor sports like table tennis and carom).

CIS Clubs

CIS encourages students to participate in a wide-range of clubs in schools including clubs like Literary Club, Eco Club, Creative Club, Health and Wellness Club, etc. Each Club is a community where students engage in continuous learning and CIS supports them in finding their unique potential. Each club has activity groups, which are populated by interested members so that specific interest areas under a club can be addressed according to the number of interested students.

CIS Olympiad

CIS Olympiad is an inter-CIS competition in which students from all CIS participate to showcase their talent in various fields. This national-level competition requires students to prove their mettle in the school, zonal and national rounds. While competition encourages the spirit of excellence, we also focus on building inter-school relationships and exchange of ideas. The Olympiad has two parts: online and on-ground.

Field Trips

Field trips are a popular activity for all students. No matter how old they are or where they are headed, kids love to explore new places with their friends. At CIS, we understand that any trip cannot qualify as a field trip. Good planning is necessary to ensure a successful and educationally relevant trip. Aims and objectives of field trips are to provide experiential learning (application of principles and concepts learnt for multiple subjects), holistic development (physical, social and emotional), and to enable formative assessment. Based on the expected learning outcomes, all outdoor activities/experiential programs are planned, designed and incorporated into the curriculum framework and lesson plans. Each school implements the outdoor activities/field trips as per their schedules. Annual outdoor activity /field trip plan is developed when the academic year commences.
