Report on After-School Activities


The after-school activities at our school have undergone recent changes, prompting the headmaster to seek student feedback. This report aims to highlight the positive aspects of the current activities and offer suggestions for improvement in the next term.

Current Situation

The after-school activities currently offer various options, catering to different interests and skill levels. The activities include sports, arts and crafts, academic clubs, and community service projects. This variety ensures students can explore their passions and develop new skills outside regular school hours.

Strengths of the After-School Activities

  • Diversity of Options: The range of activities ensures something for everyone, promoting inclusivity and participation among students.
  • Skill Development: Students can develop skills not covered in regular classes, such as teamwork, leadership, and creative thinking.
  • Enrichment: The activities allow students to delve deeper into subjects they are passionate about, enhancing their overall learning experience.

Areas for Improvement

While the current after-school activities are commendable, some areas could be improved upon in the next term:

  • Communication: Improved communication about the activities, including schedules, sign-up procedures, and changes, would help increase participation and engagement.
  • Facilities and Resources: Some activities could benefit from better facilities and resources to enhance the overall experience for students.
  • Feedback Mechanism: Implementing a feedback mechanism where students can provide suggestions and comments on the activities would help better tailor the offerings to suit their interests and needs.


Overall, our school's after-school activities provide valuable opportunities for students to learn, grow, and engage with their peers. By building on the strengths of the current activities and addressing areas for improvement, we can ensure that they continue to enrich students' lives in the next term and beyond.
