Extracurriculars

Extracurricular Activities

LCS offers extracurricular activities from Grande Section to Year 12. The variety of activities offered allow students to learn and discover new artistic, scientific, cultural, technological, manual and sports disciplines ranging from robotics to dancing. The activities available vary depending on your child’s age, and may change from semester to semester. A new activity program is put together each semester and you will have time to see the program and decide what suits you and your family best before it’s time to sign up. All extracurricular activities are carried out within the school grounds, primary school activities all finish at 5:15 pm, and all activities are run by either LCS staff members or external providers.

Asia-Pacific Swimming Championship - CAPN

The Asia-Pacific Swimming Championship is an inter-school compteition which takes place each year, and each year the event is hosted by a different school within the Asia-Pacific zone.  The students who qualify travel to the host city and compete with other students. The Lycée Condorcet has had the pleasure of winning this tournament once and, in 2020, was going to be the host school for the second time around. Unfortunately, due to the Covid19 pandemic, the tournament was cancelled. We hope to be able to organise it sometime in the near future.

Budding Ambassadors - Public Speaking

The public speaking contest Ambassadeurs en herbe or ‘Budding Ambassadors’ allows students to put skills such as plurilingualism and linguistic and cultural mediation into practice in front of their peers and an official jury. Budding Ambassadors is an annual competition in which participants from both primary and secondary school choose a topic related to current foreign affairs, and make a speech in either French or English, and interpret syntheses in English. 

The first stage of the competition is an inter-LCS event in which seven finalists are chosen. The finalists then go on to compete with students at other AEFE schools in the Asia-Pacific region, and finally, the winners of the second stage move through to the final stage which is held in Paris, France at the end of the school year. The contest aims to promote the AEFE and strengthen the MONDE-AEFE network.

ADN-AEFE Exchange Program

Since 2017, our school has been participating in the ADN-AEFE exchange program which allows selected year 10 students to spend one trimester studying at another AEFE school or at a participating French school.  The teaching staff of both the student’s current school and the host school cooperate to ensure that the exchange does not have a negative impact on the student’s education. Due to the current health crisis, the exchange program has been put on hold and will resume once safety measures allow.

Instrumental Programme

LCS offers group music activities such as choir combined with early learning music workshops and instrumental ensembles. The aim is to provide a quality educational music programme that is beneficial to your children by organising a large performance at the end of each term, in the form of a real concert, with all the participants in the music programme. This allows us to create and nurture a sense of belonging to the music programme and to participate in local and AEFE network events.

All our music teachers have an official NSW Working with Children Check which has been verified by the school. The teachers have been selected by the coordinator for their specialist skills, teaching experience and expertise in working with children.

French Schools Abroad Orchestra

The French Schools Abroad Orchestra is a fantastic project that gives students the opportunity to travel and meet young people from all over the world who share their passion for music. Once every year, the orchestra brings together students from schools in France as well as from French schools around the world.

Music Clubs

In Secondary School, the LCS offers two music related extracurricular activities. These are considered an Option in the school curriculum and are open to all students in Junior and Senior High School.

1. Music Club: 2 hours / week 
This option is open to students who have already reached a certain level in their instrumental journey. The club is a place where students get the chance to play together as a group and enjoy modern music of their choice. The club carries out several concerts throughout the year, for example during the Christmas Market and at the end of the school year. Due to  Covid-19 safety measures, brass instruments are not currently allowed.
 
2. Choir: 1 hour / week
All students who enjoy singing are welcome to join the choir. The choir usually performs several times per year, just like the Music Club. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 safety measures, the choir has not been able to be active this year.
