King George V School offers a wide and extensive co curricular programme throughout the 3 terms. Students are able to take part in the majority of these activities for no fee as our programme has always been supported by the PTSA and run by dedicated teachers willing to use their expertise for the benefit of our students. The school is famous in Hong Kong for its glorious field which was astro turfed in 2002. It has 3 impressive football/hockey pitches, double long jump pit, cricket nets, 2 volleyball courts and 3 basketball/netball courts with moveable posts. In addition we have a 25m outdoor pool, 10 badminton outdoor courts which can also be used for netball/basketball/volleyball. A weights room and a gymnasium allow our students to improve their own fitness and dance/gymnastics to be taught.
Activities range from non competitive clubs such as belly dancing and PageGV to inter schools competitive teams. The school has won the Omega and Bahaunia Awards Bowl many times and our best athletes have excelled at winning ‘Sports Person of the Year’. We believe that the after school programme allows students to learn or improve skills, develop leadership, communication and co operative skills in a fun environment.
We are always interested in introducing new events and this year has seen the introduction of ice hockey hosted at Mega box.
The school has traditions based on the House System and a major event is always the Evening of Music and Dance. This is an evening where our students have the opportunity to extend themselves not only as performers but as choreographers also. It is best described as a ‘Spectacular’ with all senses stimulated and a level of dancing that is breathtaking.
We would like to encourage all students to take part in at least one activity and we welcome any suggestions on how to improve this area further.
