Clubs & Activities
Choir (Grades 3-6)
Students meet during the lunch break on Wednesdays through the months September to December. They have one performance fieldtrip and perform in school at the Remembrance Day and Christmas concerts.
Environment Team (Grades 4-6)
Students work with a teacher mentor to promote environmental responsibility throughout the year. The students work in teams and each week a different team is responsible for collecting the recycled materials from each classroom. They use this and other factors to award the "Golden Garbage Can" award to the classroom they deem to be the most responsible for that week.
Erhu (Grades 5-6)
Grade 5 students wishing to join the Erhu club audition in the fall and must make a two year commitment. Students sign out an Erhu instrument which they will be responsible for those two years. Practices are weekly for the entire year and the club performs at various school assemblies, concerts and functions. In addition, they perform in public for Chinese New Year celebrations and other cultural events.
School Patrols (Grades 5-6)
Students patrol throughout the school year with new recruits joining in May. They are on duty from 8:20 until the entrance bell in the mornings and after school for 15 minutes.
Skipping Club (Grades 1-2)
Runs in the gymnasium twice a week through the months of January and February during the afternoon recess.

Library Club (Grades 5-6)
This club runs during the school days at recesses. Students come into the library and get to see first hand how a library is operated.
There are two students per class in grades 4-6 that come together to help organize inschool activities throughout the year. Some of the things they have done in the past are backwards day, crazy hair day, pajama day and planted flowers in a healing garden. They have also delivered Christmas cards and Valentines cards to our Meadowlark neighbours.
