Extra curricular activities

Dhekelia Primary School offers a wide range of Extra Curricular Clubs to enhance day to day learning that takes place in the classroom.

We are very lucky to have fantastic sporting facilities at DPS including an all weather astro turf pitch and use of the Station running track and Rugby pitches.

We also have a school gardening area on site to encourage all our green fingered children to use and enjoy. We encourage all pupils to take part in our clubs as part of their personal development. These clubs are an extension of our curriculum and they support our mission statement in helping pupils to develop their health and well being and give them a real sense of achievement.

The Cyprus Music Service (CMS) was formed in the Autumn Term of 1999. The aim of the CMS is to make instrumental tuition available to service children educated in Cyprus and to provide musical opportunities that will enrich their lives and build skills for the future. Instrumental tuition comes as a package consisting of two main elements:

Pupils will receive small group lessons in school during the school week. All the CMS staff are highly qualified instrumental specialists who will be available to teach a minimum of 30 lessons per academic year.

Tuition is primarily in woodwind, brass and stringed instruments. Should timetabling, staffing and schools permit; CMS will consider applications for other instruments.
