In addition to the many student involvements available in the arts and sports, there are several extra-curricular clubs at King’s. These groups are fueled by teacher and student passions. If students have an idea, they are encouraged to share it with Mrs. Conlin, the Vice Principal of School Culture (905.257.5464 ext 517).
Below is a sampling of some of our clubs. More details are available in the main office.
The Astrophysics club is a discussion and experiment group supplemented with voluntary student lectures. As an example, the club has conducted a cloud chamber experiment to observe and classify cosmic radiation (small doses of safe radioactive decay). The main objective is to obtain a greater knowledge of the universe and to further our appreciation of the complexity of God’s creations through intriguing topics such as black holes, quarks, string theory, big bang theory, extraterritorial life, special relativity, general relativity, electrodynamics and dark matter.
If you love reading, you are invited to join BOOKED for Lunch! This eclectic book club meets regularly to discuss the readings from their extensive “must-read” list – which includes many different genres. It’s a great place for discussing favourite novels and authors with friends over lunch.
Test your strategies and tactics at the chessboard. There are plenty of people at King’s who are eager to improve and compete during lunch time games.
For students interested in debate, global justice issues, and research, Model UN is a great way to engage in analytical discussion and delve into important topics that are relevant in our world today. For more information, visit the King’s MUN website.
If you want to learn to play a new instrument, why not join strings lessons? On Friday mornings, novice strings players have an opportunity to increase their individual abilities in a group setting, learning viola, violin, cello or double bass.
Largely a student initiative, the volunteer club partners with Kerr Street Ministries in Oakville. Teams of King’s students visit a few times a month to help with food bank sorting, leading children’s activities and fundraising events.
The Yearbook Committee never fails to create outstanding books that help us treasure our King’s friends and memories. Expertise in photography, layouts and meeting deadlines is important.
