Junior School Activities, Councils and Clubs

While children are encouraged to play freely during recess and break times, there are also a number of clubs offered to the students during their free time and after school. Teachers provide many interesting experiences that are meant to teach new skills and to enrich the overall learning for the children. It is hoped that students will engage in some of the activities offered during the year and benefit from the expertise of the teachers who are leading these clubs. At the beginning of each term, parents will receive a note from the Assistant Director to outline the clubs for the Term. Students will be given more information during assemblies and will be instructed about how to join the clubs.

All clubs held after school will be communicated by a sign up letter emailed to parents of grades involved. It is hoped that the clubs program will enrich the lives of our students.

NB: The following is a list of activities, clubs and councils that have been available in the last few years. Contact the Junior School Office for an up-to-date list.
