I always find the expression "extra-curricular activities" very clumsy.
Fun stuff. Hobbies. Outside activities. After school stuff. It would help to know the context, so as to know how formal it needs to be.
I've heard people who elide the activities, calling them extracurriculars.
Sometimes they are referred to after school activities, you could just call them clubs and sports, maybe nonscholastic activities. You are talking about all activities that happen at a school outside of normal classes. Not sure there is a nice short word for this.
Supplementary education can also be a synonym as its an important part along with education.
No decurtated term was found, but extracurricular activity synonyms are:
I used to call it CCA (co-curricular activity).
