Beyond the academic programme, pupils can engage in a variety of co-curricular activities that develop character, foster friendships and promote leadership and personal fulfilment. This will support the growth of a well-rounded individual by encouraging them to develop not only their academic skills during their time with us but also skills which will be required as they continue through their education and employment journey.
The Chill Out Zone – a safe place where pupils can join social clubs, including chess club, art club and a literary magazine, etc. It is also a place where pupils can communicate with other classmates.
Inspired by the British tradition of house groups, Nisai House Groups give pupils a sense of belonging by participating in house competitions. Connections between pupils are strengthened by mentoring across year groups and co-curricular activities. Students who achieve the Student of the Week title can also get extra points for their house.
Besides academic success, NGS places Project-based Learning among its top priorities. At NGS, project-based learning refers to the skills and knowledge which students can use to make a practical and positive impact within society. Through project-based learning, our students can also develop 21st century skills such as critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration.

NGS chooses to include a sustainability focus in its academic curriculum and co-curricular in a number of ways. For example:
- by including the multitude of meaningful learning contexts, issues, SDGs-related activities and community projects that sustainability provides across learning areas and levels of the curriculum.
- Through developing a whole school approach – where students engaging in practices, projects, and ways of working that lead to a more sustainable future forms the basis of the co-curricular programmes.
All students are encouraged to develop their interests and social skills by completing extra-curricular activities outside of their academic lessons. When students complete an assigned task, they are awarded a badge issued through Badgecraft. The badges that students can collect are internationally recognised and will be evidenced to show that they have developed skills relating to communication, peer support, time management, and much more.
