Get Involved in Extracurricular Activities
Don't know which extracurricular activities to join this school year? Kidzworld checks out everything from arts and science clubs to drama and intramurals!
Photography ClubIf you're snap-happy and you know it, then check out the photography club. Express yourself in a visual way by getting up close and personal with the camera, mastering the art of photography, using the darkroom, and developing your own black and white or color photos for school publications like the yearbook and student newspaper.
Sports and IntramuralsPlaying sports is one of the best extracurricular activities because it gets you out of your desk. Whether you want to play at a competitive level or just for fun, you'll find a wide range of sports to participate in, like football, track and field, badminton, water polo, basketball, or even snowboarding.
Drama ClubInstead of trying to get people's attention in the hallways, do it from the stage! The drama club is the perfect place for aspiring actors and actresses to hone their acting skills and get discovered (you never know when a director will drop by to watch your performance and decide to cast you in his next movie). If acting, singing and dancing aren't your thing, there are plenty of behind-the-scenes opportunities to get involved in, like directing, building sets, making costumes, helping the stage crew, and fundraising.
Art ClubsArt clubs are a creative haven for students who want to explore their artistic side. Check out the sewing club if you have fashion designing dreams, join painting if you want to reveal your inner Warhol, or get involved with sculpture and pottery if you like getting your hands dirty.
Science ClubsScience clubs aren't just for mad scientists! They're for anyone who's interested in participating in science experiments, spreading the word about recycling, or keeping the environment clean. Take part in various activities both in and out of the classroom - it could be a nature hike one day, a stargazing event the next day, and a trip to the science museum another day!
Chess ClubIf you're always two steps ahead of everyone else, then chess is your game! Both new and experienced players will have opportunities to play daily games and even compete in matches against other schools.
