Request exemption from participation in extra-curricular activities

All primary school students take subjects that the school must offer by law, such as language and mathematics. In addition, primary schools may offer their own extra-curricular activities, such as school swimming and field trips. These additional activities are also mandatory. Do you not want your child to participate in an extra-curricular activity? You can request an exemption.
