What are super-curricular activities?
‘Super-curricular’ means taking your knowledge and engagement above and beyond what you do in school. It’s not the same as ‘extra-curricular’ – that’s the stuff you do outside of school that isn’t linked to your academic work (we’re thinking playing sport or volunteering here). A super-curricular activity might be doing some extra reading to explore a topic you’ve studied at school in more depth. On the other hand, it might be a way to discover a brand-new area of research you hadn’t heard about before. Reading is the most obvious place to start but you can engage with subjects that interest you in loads of different ways – listen to a podcast, watch a documentary, explore an online resource, visit a museum, take part in a project… the list is endless!
