Co-Curricular Activities

To give our students more opportunities to engage in creative activities, in addition to our afterschool clubs, we have instituted Co-Curricular Activities in school on Friday afternoons. This term, children from Year 3 and above are engaging in Drumming, Hip-Hop, Make-up and Fashion, Singing, Crafts, Drama and Gardening.

General Physical Education (P.E.) for all pupils as part of their weekly timetable.
Ghanaian cultural dance training by a certified instructor from the University of Ghana, Legon. Contemporary dance and hip-hop training.
Sports Camps every July, we organise basketball, football and Bible Camps for the older children.

In line with our holistic approach to education, we currently offer a variety of extra-curricular activities, with plans to expand as the school grows. These clubs are organized after regular school hours for those who are interested.

School Clubs

Abacus Club
Abacus is a mental maths technique, which makes maths fun for children of all ages. Abacus instructors at Beacon International School are trained by UCMAS Ghana Ltd., the sole franchisee of the UCMAS programmes in Ghana (see www.ucmasghana.com).

Swimming Club
The Beacon Swimming Club is just right for teaching children this fun, but essential life-saving skill. Our trainer, a member of the National Swimming Team, is a certified trainer and has extensive experience in teaching both children and adults to swim.

Piano
In addition to general music lessons for all pupils, we also offer extra curricular piano training, leading to Associated Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM) qualifications.

Drama Club
Our club is designed to improve children’s confidence, creativity, self-esteem and communication skills. The instructor is Kwaku Boateng Ankomah, principal of the Accra branch of the internationally recognised Helen O’Grady Drama Academy in Accra and a graduate of the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) UK.

NCC ICT Club
Beacon International School is an accredited centre for NCC Education’s Digi Qualifications, UK (see www.ncc.edu.com), which offers a challenging ICT and computing syllabus for 5-14 year olds. These qualifications are quality assured in the UK and valued worldwide.

Robotics Club
The robotics club develops engineering and coding skills in its members. Children are empowered to create simple household gadgets and other problem-solving robots

The Beacon Hip-Hop Club
The beacon hip-hop club is great for muscle development and for building self-confidence in its members. Our Hip-Hop Club is designed to improve children’s coordination, balance, flexibility and general fitness.

Children are sent on regular field trips to enhance their classroom experience. Examples of previous trips include Akosombo Dam; Kpong Hydroelectric Dam; Kakum National Park; Cape Coast Castle; Cedi Beads factory, Odomase-Krobo; Amrahia Dairy Farm; Presidential Lodge, Peduase; National Meteorological Center, Control Tower, Kotoka International Airport, Accra; The Center for Scientific Research into Plant Medicine, Tetteh-Quarshie Cocoa farm, Akuapem-Mampong, and others.

Children are encouraged to be involved in community service and to develop a sense of social responsibility. The school therefore periodically organises outreaches to various locations to help poorer villages and schools. We visited Aburi on a cleaning exercise. We have also adopted the village Yensiso, in the Eastern Region as our outreach target for the next few years.
