High School Clubs Fair

Dragon Drop Stories September 2, 2022

The TCIS academic programs represent solid learning and are the foundation of education for students. However, a substantial part of the overall educational experience comes from the additional opportunities provided outside of the classroom, as students exercise their learning and character in clubs, activities, arts, and athletics.

Here at the beginning of the school year, the TCIS activities program is sponsoring the High School Clubs Fair. This two-day event is an opportunity for students to see what is on offer this year and get information about what involvement looks like for each group. Student leaders present club goals and proposed activities, and students have a face-to-face opportunity to ask questions and make connections. It is a fantastic event for students!

The TCIS activities program presents students with a wide variety of options for engaging in those things they are passionate about. Service clubs, specialty academic clubs, art and design, music, international group affiliations, and many special interest clubs are all represented.

Perhaps the best thing is that these clubs are for students, by students. Under the guidance of faculty mentors, students propose clubs based on their interests. Older students guide the younger as they organize meetings and projects. The younger students engage in fun and meaningful activities and go on to lead the next generation of student clubs.

Club involvement is a central part of the TCIS experience and the social community for students. The HS Club Fair is happening directly after lunch in the Activity Center. We hope you all had a chance to connect yesterday, and we trust you will stop by again today to see what else is on offer.
