In one of my Sims games, one of my children have been registered for an afterschool activity (ballet) but every day that she's supposed to go, she doesn't. Once she's done school at 3, she just stands outside of the school doing nothing and I have to click on the "home" icon to send her home.
If I try sending her to the afterschool activity by clicking on the "attend activity" icon in the game, it doesn't work either and tells me that "the child must be in school to attend this activity".
This is very frustrating as it's a part of the game that should be working. Please help!!!
I have the same problem. In my current game, my couple has a lot of children. Sometimes after school activities work and sometimes they don't. Sometimes they work for a while then stop. High school activities are even more hit and miss.
I've tried doing what you have suggested, but I can't move my child sim out of the house without a parent and there's only one parent in the house so far. I would have to evict the entire family and then move them back in which will lose a bunch of wishes and such. How can I move the child sim out in order to get this to work so that the afterschool activity resets? Please help!!
I recently had the same problem, and its 2013! My sims were going to the afterschool act. until one field trip went wrong. After that when they went to school the tab said "field trip" instead of "learning" so my sims could not go to their activities.
After hours of trying to figure out how to fix it, I finally fixed the problem.
I enrolled my young sims in boarding school and then switched to another household with a young sim, just to see if he could go to the after school activities. Turned out he could, so I switched back and took them out of boarding school and guess what! IT WORKED!!! So far everything is going well, however I haven't accepted a field trip to see if it would glitch again.
P.S. I don't think enrolling your sim to a boarding school matters before you switch households, that's just what I did before I tried switching households.
Hope this helps, and I hope someone didn't already post this solution
