Key to loving high school is getting involved

When I decided to ask some of my friends what they thought I should include as advice to Grade 9s many of them said that I had to stress the importance of participation in extra curricular activities.
Many people who have ever participated in a sport or club can tell you of all the fun they have had. I have dabbled in every part of the extra curricular spectrum and find it’s all about finding what YOU are interested in.
Thankfully at PECI there is a wide selection of clubs, sports and even dramatic productions! What’s even better is that there are different sports for each semester, so you can do, let’s say soccer, one semester and basketball another. You meet so many different people that share a common interest. For example you can help people in a third-world country (join the Make Poverty History group); or people who enjoy performing should look into PECI’s biannual musicals and theatre productions.
Parents, make sure your teen finds something they are passionate about! High school is only four years and trust me, standing on the sidelines isn’t any fun, get in there, make friends and make the most of your time in school.
Did I mention extra curricular activities look good on your application to post secondary schools? Once again food for thought, till next time!
