I take part in many extracurriculars activities including many clubs and teams at school as well as outside sport teams. I have been fortunate enough for opportunities UCC has given me to play on the soccer, hockey, basketball, softball and volleyball teams. I also participate in both concert and jazz bands. I participate in a variety of activities and balancing school work and extracurriculars became very challenging. But, with the support of my family and friends I was able to manage all of my activities. UCC offers so many different opportunities that all students have the ability to access. The school allows students to actually create their own clubs for people to join. I myself am trying to participate in as many clubs as I can including debate, entrepreneurial, and marketing club. What is so great about extracurriculars at UCC is that everybody will have the chance to find something they are passionate about outside of school.
Upper Canada College provides a wide range of extracurricular programs to students of all ages through their after school program. Beginning in SK there are multiple programs available each afternoon including athletic programs, arts programs, and lego, debating, woodworking and robotics to name a few. Music lessons are available through the college where the boys receive one on one music instruction with a teacher during one of their music classes each week. Once the athletic teams begin, boys may join an athletic team, where they practice during their games (PE) class, boys who do not join a school team participate in intramural sports during this time. The school does their very best to ensure these opportunities are not only available for the boys but that they are able to participate in these activities often within the school day. The wide range of extracurricular activities available as well as the support to participate helps to develop well rounded boys successful in several different areas.
Yes, there are enough extracurricular opportunities offered. Each grade has at least eight after-school programs, which are age appropriate. Most students can register the programs they like, only a few hot programs like debating need to be selected. Every family can find all their students need for extracurricular. This is what UCC does the best, as they focus on developing all-rounded students. All students are becoming a whole person with confidence and smile.
