Before and After School

Lower School Sports Clubs (K1-Grade 6)

In order to promote good health and physical fitness among our younger students who are not yet old enough to take part in extra curricular team sports, a number of sports clubs are open to children from age 4. Offerings include: Swimming (swimming lessons and swim clubs), gymnastics, track & field, ball sports and soccer.

The Lower School extra curricular sports Program is organised on an intramural basis and provides students the opportunity to participate in volleyball, soccer, basketball, swimming and track & field. Participation in the Program is limited to students in Grade 4 or 5 with the exception of swimming which starts in Grade 3. Every student taking part is given the opportunity to participate in intramural games. After an initial training period, which is devoted to learning the skills of the game, the participants are divided into teams and games are scheduled with other schools or local clubs. The coaches make every effort to balance the teams according to ability, age and experience. A formal intramural tournament is also held each season. The coaches select an "all-star" team to represent the school at the Northwest European Council of International Schools (NECIS) tournaments. Only fifth graders may be selected for NECIS; except for swimming and track & field, where fourth graders may also be invited to take part.

History Club (Grade 9-12)

The History Club at ISL aspires to work towards creating a lifelong interest in History. While IB History students will benefit from attendance at club meetings, the club is intended for all high school students from grade 9-12 who have a passion for History. The History Club will allow ISL students to explore history beyond the curriculum in various ways.  Activities may include the following: DVD sessions, specialist lectures, visiting speakers, debates, Socratic Dialogues, artefact sessions, field trips, genealogy and more. There are no pre-requisites and students who were unable to study History at the IB level will have an opportunity to continue their interest. No expertise or former experience is required. It is hoped the club will eventually become student-driven in its activities and priorities.  The History Club will meet every Monday from 3:40 – 4:40 beginning September 19th. From November 8th, however, History Club meetings will be held on Tuesdays from 3:40-4:40.  Frequent lunchtime DVD sessions will also be announced on an ad hoc basis throughout the school year.  Please contact Mr Penn or Mr Rakochy for further information: jpenn@islux.luarakochy@islux.lu

Set Design and Build (Grade 9-12)

This club will work to design and make the set for the Upper School play. The annual highly successful Upper School play requires a set. This year I am asking interested High School pupils to come forward for an after school club. We will work with the brief from the Director(s) to design and make a creative original set to fully realise their vision and transport the audience to another world. The end product will be used by the cast and seen by everyone who attends so this is an excellent opportunity to ‘flex your creative muscle’ and provide a valuable service. Particularly of interest to budding designers, hobbyists, and people interested in theatre, particularly backstage.  Meeting at 15.45 to 17.00 in U009, each Thursday. Please contact Bruce Duxbury for further information: bduxbury@islux.lu


Yoga (Grade 9-12)

According to the ancient yoga sutra the 4 main pillars of yoga are Ease, Balance, Effort and Surrender. Every pose you engage in has an element of these. In the yoga classes we will explore the basic poses of yoga, and learn how breathing guides your movements. The goal is to leave every class energised, toned and relaxed. The class is for High School students and anyone else in the ISL Community. There is no need to be flexible or experienced in yoga.
