Extracurricular activities at the GSN

The German School Nairobi offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, which are an important component of our integral learning beyond the teaching plan. This comprehensive range gives students the opportunity to develop new skills and knowledge, discover their passions, build self-confidence, grow socially and emotionally and simply have fun.
With a focus on sport, music and art, our varied programme is well structured and is offered in nursery, primary school and at the secondary school level. The students have the opportunity every semester to choose the activities and register for them.
The activities offered at the school include, among others: football (for boys and girls), basketball (for boys and girls).
The activities are run both by our school employees and external partners.

Clubs may be changed biannually.

Registering for clubs and for lunch and school bus transport is done for the whole school (nursery, primary school and secondary school section) at the start of the new school semester through a packaged online registration. The link for this is sent to the parents by email within the first week of school at the start of each semester.

    School trips at the GSN

    School trips, hike days and excursions are an important component of our overall educational concept. They serve to promote social skills, develop personality, provide education in the areas of nature, the environment, technology and culture and to fortify sports activities.

    Students get the opportunity to have communal experiences as part of school trips, hike days and excursions, which strengthen the class’ cohesion and sense of community spirit.

    In the primary and mid-sections, school trips take place every 2 years. In the upper section, 2 trips are held. School years for which no school trip is planned go on 2-3 hike days or excursions per school year.
