Extra-Curricular Activities, Clubs, and Athletics
At OBK, we believes that extracurricular activities provide great opportunities where our students can interact with others and improve their social skills. They also provide students with a chance to practice their hobbies, and excel in performing them.
OBK students take part in national and international conferences, competitions, science fairs, and drama/music competitions. Field trips, both educational and recreational, are scheduled yearly where students visit theaters , museums, historical sites, art exhibitions, book fairs, and factories .Clubs are also established yearly, and students are encouraged to join them.
Physical education is an important part of the school’s curriculum. OBK students are assessed in their athletic abilities at the beginning of the preschool level. In the elementary school, physical education classes aim to develop motor coordination and balance skills. In the middle and secondary school, PE classes focus on the techniques required for both team and individual sports.
Competitions among Makassed schools are regularly organized promoting student participation in athletics and sportsmanship. OBK’s teams compete locally and internationally in football, basketball, volleyball, and handball competitions.
