Descriptions of Clubs

Alliance Group:

The Alliance is a group of students who get together 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.

Athletic Union:

The Athletic Union gives students a voice within the athletic life of the school.

Battle of the Books:

Battle of the Books is for students who like to read and who like to test their knowledge of the titles they’ve read in a battle of wits. This club meets Wednesdays in the library and gives students the opportunity to interact with students from other high schools in the board.  

Best Buddies:

A club to create one-to-one friendships between student volunteers and students with intellectual developmental disabilities and ASD. Fun activities will be planned monthly.

Board Games:

Come on out for a fun-filled lunch hour of board games and interactive role-playing games in room 144! We meet Wednesdays at lunch in room 144. See you there!

Drama Club:

Students in the Drama Club will have the opportunity to act, write, direct and stage a play that will be presented to the student body in addition to attending the Sears Drama Festival in March.

Spartan Christian Fellowship:

This club is a Christian Fellowship group that meets regularly at lunch in room 224 to discuss the foundation and teaching of Christianity. Sharing our various views, prayer requests and outreach are only a few of the focuses of this group. All staff and students are welcome regardless of your religious background.

Ecoteam:

This environmentally conscious group is involved in several activities each year, to promote and care for the environment. They compete in the annual Envirothon each year.

Intramurals:

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.
The up-coming sports include indoor soccer, floor hockey, 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 our Me to We pillar, 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.

Music Council:

This is an organizational group that meets Mondays at lunch in the music room (Rm 166) to help set up concerts, assemblies and other music events taking place in the school and community.

Choir:

The choir is an auditioned vocal group for students who enjoy singing.  No experience is necessary; however, it is an asset. This year our choir will be combined with the choir from IEWSS in a special mass band program.  We are looking forward to a trip to New York City in the spring. This group will rehearse every Wednesday after school from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Attendance at all rehearsals is mandatory.  

Concert Band:

Concert Band is open to anyone who has played a band instrument for at least one year.  This year our band will be combined with the band from IEWSS in a special mass band program.  We are looking forward to a trip to Chicago in the spring. We rehearse every Tuesday after school from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm.  Attendance at all rehearsals is mandatory.

Guitar Club:

This group meets every Friday at lunch for a “jam session” with other students and teachers who just want to play guitar and learn some new music.  Bring your acoustic guitar with you!

Jazz Ensemble:

This is an auditioned group for students who are interested in playing jazz, Latin, and R&B music.  This year our jazz ensemble will be combined with the band from IEWSS in a special mass band program.  We are looking forward to a trip to Chicago in the spring. This group will rehearse every Wednesday after school from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm.  Attendance at all rehearsals is mandatory.

School Reach:

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.

Ski and Snowboard Club:

This club meets 6 Wednesdays in January and February after school from 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm at Brimacomb in Kirby. The bus fee is paid in advance and every week tow tickets need to be purchased. Please pick up a permission form from Ms. Bellefeuille. Forms will become available in late November. Please listen for announcements as only 40 students will be selected on a first come, first serve basis.

Stitch It Club:

If you ever wanted to learn how to knit, loom knit or crochet, this is the club for you.  You can choose a project and we will help you learn the steps in order to complete it.  It is a great club to join if you love giving homemade gifts or just taking a break.  Yarn crafting has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety, while also aiding mental performance.  Come try it out!

Student Council:

The Student Council provides students with an opportunity for their voices to be heard within LCVI’s community, and it is a great way to have a positive influence on the life of the school. Members help organize social events that are enjoyed by all students such as barbecues and dances. They organize spirit days, promote school involvement, and help people in need.

Student Mental Health Committee:

The goal of this committee is to plan awareness campaigns, like the Blue Elephant, to help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. We also plan events and activities through the year and during Mental Health week to promote healthy mental and physical wellbeing. Let’s help make the Spartan community strong, supportive and healthy!

Spartan Squad:

The Spartan Squad is comprised of senior-level students that wish to help our grade 9 students make a smooth transition into high school. They are ambassadors of the school and take great pride in organizing events such as the Grade 9 Orientation, Cocoa and Cram Study Session, Grade 9 Parent’s Night and a variety of other events.
