The practice of providing students with extended learning opportunities (before- and after-school, weekend, and breaks) to expand their learning and participate in a variety of extracurricular activities is long standing. After-school activities can provide students with a positive alternative to spending time on the streets or being home alone in the afternoons. Research reveals that high-quality after-school programs can reduce risk-taking behaviors, while improving the academic performance of students, particularly those at risk of academic failure.
Dharumavantha School offers such opportunities to students after session through various extra classes and activities such as clubs, associations, language learning programs, and other leadership programs. The school will be strengthening the programs conducted during extra time by putting more varieties on offer very soon.
