Every school out there has a variety of clubs, sports, and activities that are worth getting involved in. The hardest part is finding the right one for you. With so many choices, which activity will give you the most opportunities and let you have fun? Find out who you truly are and what interests you, and then go from there.
If you’re the athletic type, try out for a sport. Most schools offer each sport for both boys and girls, and new sports are being introduced like golf and dance. There is everything from basketball and football, to soccer and badminton. Talk to a coach and find out when tryouts are, then get the equipment and start practicing!
Sports not your thing? Schools have a variety of clubs that you can join, some academic and others just for fun. If you like taking pictures and writing, try the school newspaper or join the yearbook club and help put it together. If you’re in grade 12, some schools have a grad committee. Join the club and you can help make decisions and fundraise money for your graduation. If there isn’t a club out there for you, start your own! Get a teacher to sponsor the club, and then spread the word. You could make a difference with something you truly enjoy.
Getting involved in your school can also mean volunteering for events like organizing a dance or designing the backdrops for the school play. There are many opportunities to volunteer or get in some work experience. Ask your career counsellor what is available at the moment in your school.
Getting involved in your school has its rewards. Some scholarship committees look for students who take part in their school. Involving yourself in the school demonstrates school spirit and allows you to explore different activities. So get moving and sign up for something in your school!Login or register to post comments.
