Extracurricular activities or clubs offered

With nearly 100 activities taking place each week, Extra Curricular Activities play an important role at DESC. Students participate in and enjoy many opportunities for involvement in areas outside the established curriculum. We continually aim to produce a range of exciting sporting, creative, cultural and aesthetic activities that will help all of our students to develop their talents. There is a clear expectation of our students to participate in at least one ECA per term. All students have gifts and through the extra-curricular programme, we seek to enhance their learning experiences beyond the compulsory curriculum throughout their time at DESC.
