At JECO COLLEGE we run an extensive co-curricular program each week and they are divided into two section;
- Academic Clubs
- Community Service Organisation
What is the difference between extra-curricular and co-curricular activities?
The use of the word co-curricular as opposed to extra-curricular highlights our holistic view of the education of your child. These activities do not take part after the school day has finished there are a fundamental part of the student’s education. Thus, they are not extra the are co or part of the education that your son or daughter receives at Jeco College.
During co-curricular time soft skills of resilience, confidence, problem solving, leadership, development of both physique, intellect and team work are developed. These skills play an important part in the overall development of the child and are proven to have a positive impact on their academic performance. A wide range of clubs, and societies exist in which students will choose from and be actively involved.

- STEM (Science,Technology,Engineering,Mathematics)
