Extra Curricular Activities

Developing a well-balanced lifestyle

We believe that all our students should be given every chance to discover subjects and activities that genuinely appeal to them, and then be allowed to pursue those passions in a supportive learning environment.

GEMS (Singapore) provides diverse extra-curricular activities (ECA) in academics, sports and the arts throughout the year for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Our goal is to have a balanced ECA programme that allows your child to develop their character, acquire new skills and discover new passions. These ECAs are run by our own excellent faculty members and provided free of charge.

In addition, we offer various activities as part of our Enrichment Programme at an additional charge. These activities are led by professional instructors from external providers that work under the GEMS regulations and standards.

Most of our unpaid ECAs take place from 3:45 – 4:45 pm.

We offer after ECA Bus Service to predetermined drop-off locations around Singapore for the students participating in ECAs.

How to register your child for ECAs?

Login to Schools Buddy portal to signup for various ECA activities. Should you have any questions with regards to the ECAs, please contact Cindy Tay (Parent Relations Executive) at or Danny Tauroa (Head of Sport and Physical Education) at
