Club & Societies

AtWesley, we believe that  extra-curricular activities greatly enhance the school experience of our students and bring a lot of benefit to the students.

  • Roles Model

    Involvement in clubs sets a good example for younger students. If  students are seen volunteering as part of a club, it makes younger students want to contribute to the school and society in a positive way also. It encourages students to be part of a positive outlet instead of one of the many negative influences that can be part of society.

  • Learning Opportunities

    Clubs provide students with opportunities to learn in ways that may not be an option by simply concentrating on academics.  These students often have guest speakers at meetings and even go into the business community as part of the club activities.  Often these students see whether careers interest them or if they would like to do something else.  Clubs provide learning opportunities that can influence what teenager want to do after high school.

  • Leadership

    A benefit to participation in school clubs is that it is a chance to hold an elective office such as president or secretary.  These provide students with opportunities to lead students and gain experience in organizational activities.  Having these  leadership positions can often open doors for future opportunities and build up their strength on leadership.

  • Meet Friends

    Clubs often provide students with the chance to spend time and make friends with those who have the same interests. Once students have something in common, school becomes a more positive place to be. Clubs serve as a positive outlet for students to socialize.

  • Positive Outlet

    Involvement in school clubs also provide students with a positive outlet for their energy. Students who are involved in clubs are participating in a positive activity during that time. They aren’t out engaging in behaviour that is not the best for teenagers such as drinking or smoking. Students who are active in clubs are less like to indulge in drug use and are more likely to be successful in school.

  • Enjoyment

    Don’t underestimate the importance of having fun in high school.  Some of the best times and memories students have are the experiences of belonging to a club. Whether it is the club bowling party or the highs and lows of club responsibilities, clubs are important to join just for the enjoyment that they will bring to most students.

Clubs and organizations provide students with many positive experiences that help them to become well-rounded individuals who are ready for college or the workplace. Joining a club can be one of the best decisions that a student ever made.
