Extra-Curricular & Clubs
Student activities are an integral part of an IC education, in line with the philosophy that taking part in life outside the classroom through extra-curricular activities is essential to helping students develop initiative, self-confidence, and responsible citizenship as well as an awareness of, and respect for, individual differences and respect for the environment. To develop these essential attitudes, IC has a large variety of clubs and societies (96 as of 2018) that are cultural, philanthropic, athletic, and social in nature. Depending on the age of the student, extra-curricular activities offered to students include Drama, Debate, Music, as well as a variety of Athletics and Art activities. Other extra-curricular activities on offer include Arabic Club, Math Club, Press, Photography, Folk Dancing, Archery, Chess, General Knowledge, Cinema, and Robotics (complementing our pioneering STEAM education and facilities). Each club or activity is led by a responsible Faculty Advisor who has an interest in and specific knowledge about the activity. IC is happy to say the number of clubs available to students is now close to nearly three figures, with 96 clubs on offer throughout the school.
IC students participate in national and international conferences of the Model United Nations, national Science fairs, national and international environmental conferences, drama productions, and in music competitions and concerts both inside and outside Lebanon.
IC’s location makes it accessible to historical sites and cultural events in and around Lebanon. Field trips, both educational and recreational, are scheduled into the academic year. Students visit theaters, museums, historical sites, art exhibitions, and book fairs. They go on field trips related to their science, environmental studies, art, and social studies courses.
Suffice to say, the provision of so many opportunities and experiences for our students outside of the classroom enables them to develop that initiative, self-confidence, and responsible citizenship so important to each and every student at IC, and in turn the famous IC Spirit lives and breathes!
