Extra-Curricular

Extra-curricular learning is at the heart of our curriculum and all our students have opportunities for activities, field trips, and physical learning.

We Focus on Fun!

We believe learning should be fun for all ages from our Early Years to Secondary school students. 

Our curriculum is packed with opportunities for students to explore their extra-curricular interests

Extra-Curricular Classes

Extra-curricular classes are run as standard in all timetables

U-Can students regularly enjoy sports, music, drama, dance, art, audio-visual, computer training, gardening, and swimming in their timetables. New to 2022, secondary school students will have the opportunity to take a course in construction and technology at our very own school workshop!

Students throughout the school attend the Entebbe Botanical Gardens weekly for outdoor learning activities. Recently our Early Years program have been getting busy using their surroundings to create art! Our Middle and Secondary schools recently took part in a den building contest using natural resources.

We believe that offering engaging extra-curricular activities develop children’s social skills, enjoyment of learning and academic grades!

Field trips

Students learn best with practical real-world links

U-Can students benefit from regular field trips to our communities. We believe it is important for students to be given opportunities to learn about the communities, cultures and environments around them.

Some of our recent field trips have been: 

  • aviation trip to Entebbe International Airport
  • Primary trip to the Reptile Center 
  • Secondary reward trip to Rolex Guy
  • Mural painting at Entebbe Zoo
  • Supermarket appliance energy comparison visits
  • shopping for textiles at the local market
  • factory visits

Sports and Swimming

Active students are happy students

We believe students work best when they’re up and moving. When we sit at a desk all day it is hard to concentrate so we don’t expect this from our students. 

All students participate in sports lessons each week where they cover a range of skills and techniques associated with a variety of sports. classes are held on our basketball court and football pitch.

Our Early Years to Middle School students also participate in weekly swimming lessons at the fantastic facilities of Lake Victoria Hotel. Our swimming classes are specifically designed to teach water confidence and swimming stroke skills to a variety of abilities of all ages.
