The Mills offers a wide variety of afternoon clubs to complement the academic curriculum as well as providing opportunities for pupils to develop new skills and talents: we see it as a crucial part of what we offer at the school.
Every schoolyear, The Mills publishes a wonderful Yearbook, testimony of the culture of friendship and mutual respect, where individuality is celebrated in the context of an inclusive, supportive and dynamic community. For our students, their parents and our Alumni a fantastic memento of their years at The Mills.
And remember...don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened!
Bringing learning to life at every opportunity, we provide a varied range of enrichment opportunities throughout the school year. One of these is our School Journal, which provides a fascinating insight into the world we live in. All girls and boys in our Junior High School can ask to be part of the editorial staff, a real chance to boost confidence and encourage teamwork. We like our youngsters to develop intellectual curiosity, indipendence of mind and the ability to take responsability for the expression of their own ideas.
Once the academic school year is over, The Mills organizes an exciting Summer School - for children between the ages of 3 and 11 - welcoming The Mills pupils but also a rather substantial number of very enthusiastic external participants. This is a great way for children to make new friends and develop new skills in a fun, safe environment AND - last but not least - to overcome linguistic barriers with ease, as our summer camp functions mostly in English, running a variety of fun activities. Summer School is often a launch pad for prospective pupils: it is a great way to experience how relaxed and joyful, yet purposeful this school can be.

(early-entrance from 7.45 AM)

The Mills has a strong reputation in the performing arts: Drama and Public Speaking in particular. Drama is not only a compulsory part of the curriculum up to Year 9, but also an extremely popular subject: most students enjoy taking part in plays, school musicals and productions - including performing at the Trieste European Drama Festival for schools. Spoken English is an important part of education at The Mills, with all Year 9 students receiving lessons as part of the curriculum, culminating in their speech, delivered at our yearly Public Speaking event.
