Whatever their passions and interests, there is an activity for them and we encourage all our students to take part in some way. Our hope is that not only do they enjoy a range of experiences beyond the regular classroom, but have the opportunity to follow their interests, try something new, and potentially enrich their own lives as well as those of others.
Our after school ECAs generally take place after school on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday (2:40 – 3:30 pm).
The Duke of Edinburgh International Award
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award, and KSIM is proud to be the only school in Montenegro, and one of a limited number in the region, to offer The Award.
The Award is a programme of activities, with each young person who takes part learning skills, improving their physical fitness, volunteering in their community and experiences a team adventure in a new environment. Success in the Award is measured by regular participation over a fixed period of time while showing commitment and progress in each activity.
The Award is divided into three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold, which correlate with varying time commitments growing progressively longer from Bronze to Gold. Students are eligible to start their Bronze Award from the age of 14, and during Years 12 and 13, IBDP students can count their activity hours to both the Award and their CAS requirements. At KSIM, students who take part in The Award attend regular club meetings, with sessions covering a range of activities including navigation, campcraft and first aid.
Model United Nations (MUN)
Model United Nations – also known as MUN – is an academic activity that allows students to participate in a challenging simulation of a United Nations debate. Students as chairs and delegates discuss important on-going global issues using communication skills, vast knowledge and a diplomatic approach. Students representing a country are required to approach the issue using that country’s regulations and policies, which enables them to think from different perspectives.
KSIM’s MUN programme engages students in real-life situations. By empowering students to think critically, analytically and beyond personal and local perspectives, it gives the students the opportunity to make their voices heard and nurture international-mindedness. Whether taking part in local events, or at international conferences, MUN is a great exercise for our students to develop and hone their skills in public speaking, group communication, event organisation, negotiation, conflict resolution, note-taking, writing and editing.
Our students have also found it to be advantageous when applying to universities, as it shows a dedication to an extracurricular activity and an appreciation for diversity and tolerance for other cultures, traditions and ways of thinking.
