International School Suva is committed to providing a strong program of co-curricular activities. This is in line with the Vision and Mission of the school and each program is an integral part of the High School curriculum that allows students to develop skills by trying something entirely new and undertaking an activity with renewed purpose. We are trying to promote student well-being, challenge them to think about others and develop a sense of social responsibility as well as understand their own limits.
The key programs are the Tuesday Afternoon Activities (compulsory for Year 9-10), the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award (Year 9 -12) and the Creativity, Action and Service Program which is part of the Core component of IB Diploma Program in Year 11 and 12.
