After School Activities Programme (ASAP)

The extracurricular programme is an extension of the core curriculum at OIS. Our students are physically and mentally challenged to attain–to the best of their abilities–a variety skills that they can use throughout life. Many of our after school activities are organised and run on campus by highly qualified external instructors.

External affiliates

ASAP also works with external affiliates that provide sports and extra-curricular activities within the greater Oslo area. These are organised and run by local clubs and organisations, and open to OIS families and students. Community offerings include: American Football, Gymnastics, Golf, Baseball, Hockey, Tennis, Skating, Skiing, Swimming, Rowing, Scuba Diving and many more. If you are looking for a particular activity, we can help you find it.
