Elementary Activities Program

Elementary Activities Program


Our Elementary School students benefit from a variety of programs that are sponsored by teachers and members of our community. These programs enhance children's creativity with a wide variety of arts and crafts, puzzles, games, and outdoor activities. These all build critical thinking skills, listening, memory, visualization, concentration through singing, hands-on experiments, physical movement, word puzzles, art projects, and more.

Youth Sports

The Youth Sports program provides our Elementary School students with opportunities to experience and develop skills in a range of indoor and outdoor sporting activities. These include core sports skills. They learn and develop the required skills to participate in a sport, leadership skills and positive social skills towards developing a balanced lifestyle. 


Our Learn to Swim program is structured to teach fundamental stroke skills to develop strong, safe and confident independent swimmers. The skills-based teaching is based on the internationally recognized American Red Crescent Swimming and Water Safety Aquatics program, which focuses on stroke technique and water safety.

In Elementary School the classes take place at the Harbor Elementary East Pool with certified swim instructors.

Our Kindergarten students may also participate in our new Preschool Aquatic Levels (PAL) program, which aligns with the Elementary Swimming curriculum.

We Stand Out

We’re all different and reach our potential in different ways. Inside and outside the classroom. That’s why at TKS we complement our rigorous International Baccalaureate curriculum with a wide range of classroom-based activities.

Sports & Physical Education

TKS regularly organizes sports tournaments with other schools, such as the visit in November 2021 by Miras Team, one of Jeddah’s best women’s football squads, for a series of friendly games against a representative TKS Sharks team and KAUST’s Magpies Women’s Football Club. New rules for Saudi teams meant Miraas could also recruit non-Saudi players as well as junior players (with parental approval), therefore they were also scouting KAUST players to bolster their squad for these upcoming league games.

Music, Arts & Performing Arts

The arts play a prominent role at TKS, both as an integral part of the curriculum as well as through a range of activities, providing students with numerous opportunities for creative expression.

Technology & Digital Learning

TKS purposefully integrates technology and information literacy in order to enhance learning experiences, and empowering learners to create, collaborate and connect through the responsible use of print and digital resources.

Student Council & Groups

Student Council & Groups

Student Council Association

Elected annually by their peers, the Middle School and High School Student Council Association (SCA) strive to make everyone ‘part of it’.

This dynamic group of secondary students provides a voice for all and works tirelessly towards creating an inclusive school that welcomes the entire TKS student body. Students in the SCA come from across all grade levels in the secondary school.
The SCA roles on the Executive Council include President, Vice President, Action Liaison, Communications Officer, Tech Officer, Recording Secretary, and Secretary. These students organize and run the events and activities developed by the SCA. Assisting them in this are three SCA Advisors.

During the year, the SCA makes a valuable contribution to TKS, organizing events such as Sports Day, Spirit Week, Night School, and the Support Staff Luncheon, as well as International Week.
The SCA also meets regularly with the Garden Secondary School principal to convey the students’ voice related to issues that are relevant to the students.

Student Led Groups

We strongly encourage students to take on leadership roles within activities. There are three ways students can engage as a leader within activities:

  1. Formal Leadership
    Apply for a role in one of these programs Eg. SCA, or Sharks Ambassadors*.
  2. Leadership roles within activities
    Liaise with staff activity sponsors to take on responsibility, e.g. sports captain, Model United Nations secretariat, mentoring/supporting other students, assisting staff sponsors in delivering training, scorekeeping, and live streaming.
  3. Leading activities themselves
    Students can offer to lead/deliver activities they are passionate about (under the mentorship/guidance of a staff sponsor). e.g. Kahoot Club, Chess Club, Creative Writing, Origami, Debate Club, etc.
