The activities program at APIS takes place after school on two days each week. Day students and boarders are included. Parents and students are informed of the options in advance and are given a description of activities on offer for the season so that together they can make an informed decision on what activity will best suit the student’s needs. Students then have the opportunity to “test” the activity and there is a one week window where students have the option to change their activity if they feel they have made the wrong choice.

The team sports program and inter-school sporting fixtures run parallel to the activities program in three seasons each school year.
