    Extracurricular activities today play an important role in the all-round development of

    students. They improve school performance, promote relationships, boost motivation

    and self-esteem help to instil positive physical, intellectual and social habits that revert in a

    better management and organization of leisure time.

    SEK-Catalunya has designed, in line with the principles and values of the SEK Educational

    Model a wide and varied range of first-rate extracurricular activities which give students the

    opportunity to enrich their academic, cultural, artistic and sporting education.

    These activities represent an ideal complement to students' education and help stimulate

    them, affording them an optimal way to enhance their personal qualities.

    SEK-Catalunya designs its extracurricular activities based on three key priorities and

    taking into account the preferences and needs of each student: Individualised education

    (the learning process adapts to the interests and abilities of each student); bilingual and

    international education (learning languages and developing a mindset open to other

    cultures) and training in skills and competences (creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship,

    critical thinking, communication, teamwork).

    Choosing which activities are most appropriate for each student based on their abilities,

    interests and motivations is not always easy. Therefore, tutors will always be available to

    families to advise and help them make the right decision.

    Throughout the school year, a follow-up of the work involved in these activities is carried

    out which is further analysed and assessed in the quarterly meetings with the tutor.
