After School Clubs

Gyeongnam International Foreign School offers a wide variety of after school clubs from Kindergarten to Grade 12. GIFS teachers, GIFS high school students, as well as members of the Sacheon community organize these activities.

School club activities take place from Monday to Friday between 3:30 pm and 4:25 pm
A late school bus is always available for students living in the Geoje area.

Extra curricular clubs are divided into 3 sessions (Session 1, 2 and 3)

Clubs are announced during and confirmed one week before the beginning of each session (please check the Events Calendar for the session start dates).

Some after school club activities have a limit of student participants. If the limit is reached the school will apply a first arrived, first served policy.

Most activities are free, however some will have a small fee to cover the costs of materials needed to run the club.

Notes regarding our SKAC and Club offerings for Session 1:

12th Grade

They are unable to join club activities on Wednesday due to their Theory of Knowledge class. They can still sign up but they will not attend the club on that day. 

Orchestra – Students need their own instruments (violin, clarinet, cello).

Contact Ms. Lee for instrument or fee details (music@gifs.or.kr or the front office at the # below). Grade 1 & 2 can be accepted but must perform an individual audition first.

Rock Band – Students need to audition to join the band. The auditions will be held the first 2 Fridays of the session starting Sept. 17.

Volunteer Club

This will be a student-centered club that Ms. Becky Kim will monitor. Meetings will not be held according to a specific weekly schedule. They will meet as needed and students will be informed of meeting days and times in advance. Meetings will most likely not take place after school. More information will be provided by the club’s organizer, 10th grade student, Ken Woo.

Culture Club

An educational program exploring different creative cultural activities that showcase students’ culture. They will gain a global understanding and appreciation for differences with an emphasis on sharing unique perspectives. They will consider their own cultures and be exposed to the value that others bring to a group. Social and emotional learning will play an integral role in this experience. 

Arts & Crafts

A fun way for students to learn to make art with common items. The crafts will explore themes in culture, language, math, and science through mini lessons and storybooks that students will read as a group. The activities will be fun and educational, as well as help develop and nurture the child’s creativity and fine motor skills. Students will also have a chance to share their work with their peers at the end of each craft.

STEM

STEM stands for Science, Technology Engineering, and Mathematics. It emphasizes collaboration, communication, research, problem solving, critical thinking, and creativity. These are valuable skills that students can benefit from learning at any age. This club will also expose your students to a variety of disciplines and how skills can connect and transfer between them.

Dance Club

Anyone who can move can dance. Whether you have two left feet or you’re a pro; you’ll feel welcome at the Dance and Rhythm Club. Come join us for the opportunity to learn new dance moves and routines from a variety of dance genres. 

Session 2 will be updated.

Session 3 will be updated.
