EXTRA CURRICULA ACTIVITIES
Since learning occurs in and out of the classroom, Springwell Academy naturally gives attention to various extra curricula activities.
With our relevant infrastructure, we hope to carve a niche in sports which is believed to contribute more to “School Spirit” than any other single factor. Participation in sports provides lessons that cannot be learnt in the traditional classroom.
