Descriptions of Clubs
The Alliance is a group of students who get together once a week throughout the school year to discuss and promote human rights and anti-discrimination. If you are interested in social issues such as racism, homophobia, gender equality or other forms of discrimination, we could use your help and participation. Some of our activities in the past have included field trips to conferences and workshops, social events with gay-straight alliance groups from other high schools in our area and leadership of in-school events such as a Day of Silence, Day of Kindness and Anti-bullying week. Everyone is welcome to join.

This group will rehearse every Wednesday after school from 2:30pm to 4:30pm. Attendance at all rehearsals is mandatory.

Intramurals take place in the big gym at lunch throughout the school year. Students make up their own teams with their own friends. There are 3 divisions: open girls, 9-10 boys, 11-12 boys. Teams that commit to playing multiple sports are considered ‘Super Teams’ and have the opportunity to make their own team T-shirts!
The up-coming sports include: indoor soccer, floor ball, volleyball, dodge ball, and volleyball. At the end of the school year, teams in each division with the highest number of points will be awarded the “Spartan Shield” at the end of the year assembly.

Me to We
Me to We is a school club that helps students become more socially and environmentally conscious. We encourage students to make positive changes in their lives. One of our goals is to take our focus from ourselves to others. We collect money for Tibetan students, collect food for food drives, plan fun activities for our school and attend We Day. One of our goals this year is to be actively involved in community outreach programs by volunteering. Come out and see how you can make a difference.
This group meets every Thursday at lunch in the music room (166). These students help to plan the music tour of New York City, organize assemblies and concerts, fundraise for music, and just have a lot of fun. If you have great ideas and want to help out music at LCVI this is the place to be! Bring your lunch. The first meeting is THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8th at 11:00am. All are welcome!
This is the ultimate club for trivia buffs! Meetings take place on Fridays at lunch with meetings extending to 2X a week closer to tournaments. Lunch hour on Friday is spent answering trivia questions and competing against each other. Tournaments are set up and competition is held against 5 other schools. The winning team goes on to compete at the Provincial tournament in Toronto and the winner there competes at the national level which is televised.
