GIST – After School Program


After School Program

Our teachers have a wonderful affinity for children and offer a diverse and engaging afternoon program for our kindergarten to grade 8 students.

Our JK to grade 8 students have the option to stay in the afternoon care until either 3:15 pm or 5:30 pm. The afternoon care can be booked on an annual or daily basis. If you book in advance for a school year, you benefit from a flat rate. While homework assistance is a cornerstone of what is offered and a huge added-value proposition for parents, there is also free play and outdoor activities integrated into the afternoon. To extend the experience further, students may also enroll in our clubs/extracurricular activities.

During the afternoon program, we offer a large number of clubs/extracurricular activities which start after lunch breaks and usually take place from 1:45 pm to 3:15 pm (later for higher grades). The most common clubs include Sports, French, Art, Music, Yoga and many more. The clubs vary every school term but the offer is always broad. The clubs are advertised at the beginning of each school term via newsletter with further instructions on how to sign up.  

If you have already booked afternoon care for the school year, participation in internal clubs offered by GIST teachers is free. External clubs offered by a third party will be charged separately.
