The Activity Programme provides an opportunity for students to relax, meet up with their friends and practise their English through fun activities. Every afternoon after classes there are sports, excursions and events that make the most of what CLAC and the surrounding area have to offer.

In the evenings the Activity Team arranges games, tournaments, parties, quiz nights, discos, movies and shows so that there is always something for students to do.
