EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Pupils are encouraged to participate in extra -curricular activities in the belief that this is an essential aspect of their overall education, and complimentary to their academic development, both of these components being essential in preparing our pupils for life. Douglas is committed to an education that extends beyond the confines of the classroom. Exemption from games can only be granted on production of a Medical Certificate. It is in the interest of every student that he should identify himself with some school extracurricular activity.
