Clubs

POINT GREY CLUBS 2022-2023

Clubs are a key component of any vibrant school. They provide opportunities for students to connect with peers who share similar interests. These interactions may form the basis for enduring friendships. Clubs also help students develop critical skills such as interpersonal communication, collaboration, initiative and tenacity.

Meetings

Clubs can meet before school, during lunch, or after school, but not during class time or during morning or afternoon Flex Time.

Online

Please use the Microsoft Teams platform. Your Club Sponsor can set up a Club Team for you. Your Club Sponsor must be present for all meetings.

In-person

In-person meetings are permitted if the following if the Club Sponsor is in attendance.

Activities and Events

The Club Sponsor must be present at all club activities and events. No exceptions. If you are considering an activity or event, please submit an Application for Club Event Form (available in the office) to Mr. Humphries at least 10 school days prior to the event/activity. All advertising posters for an event/activity must be stamped in the office and signed by the Club Sponsor. 

Fundraising

In order to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, most fundraising activities will not be permitted this year. Selling of food/beverage/items will generally not be possible. Fundraising will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please complete an Application for Fundraising Form (available in the office) and submit it to Mr. Humphries (Vice Principal) at least 10 school days prior to the proposed event.

Service Hours and Service Points

Only approved service clubs qualify for service hours and points. Within these clubs, service hours must be carefully recorded and verified/approved by the Club Sponsor. In some clubs the core leaders may accumulate service hours and points, while the general membership does not (see each club listed below for specifics).

Recruiting Club Members

Clubs Day is on Friday, October 7 (afternoon) in the cafeteria. This is a great opportunity for clubs to advertise and recruit members.  Please make sure that your display includes the following:  the name of your club, a brief description, contact information, and a meeting day, time and place, and a sign-up sheet...plus some enticing creativity.  Clubs information will also be posted (and updated) on the Point Grey website under the "Extracurricular" tab.

Club Report (mid-year)

In order to remain in good standing, all clubs must submit a Mid-year Report in January. This Report will summarize club meetings, activities and progress, and show how the club has been of benefit to the students of Point Grey Secondary, and/or the community beyond.  Your Club Sponsor will receive the form, who will then sign off and submit it to the office once completed. Clubs that do not show clear progress through their Mid-Year Report will be asked to suspend further meetings, activities and events.

Gratitude

Club members are reminded to show gratitude towards your club sponsor. A regular, genuine “thank you” is all that’s required. This is an important part of maintaining a positive school culture.
