Co-Curricular Activities

The focus of our co-curricular program is to provide meaningful and challenging experiences outside the classroom that spark curiosity and increase the feeling of belonging. Students are able to find their passions, learn to communicate effectively with their peers, engage in meaningful community service and embrace experiences that allow them to be their best selves. Participation in co-curricular activities, service initiatives, social events and our house system are all integral parts of student life that foster a caring and inclusive culture at our school.

At the Junior School, our students have the ability to extend their day and expand their horizons with our co-curricular activities. The catalogue of options varies throughout the school year, and students can choose from a wide variety of teacher-led clubs, as well as clubs offered by trusted external providers.

Although the specific offerings are always evolving, the most popular Junior School clubs are: musical theatre; cooking; Crafty Kids; Discovery Lab STEAM Explorers; LEGO; chess; improvisation/drama; Just Dance!; photography; and Rubik’s Cubers. Most clubs meet after school.
