From rock-climbing to fashion: Students attend Activities Fair

Clubs and organizations 11 September 2018

CATS Academy students got the opportunity to find out about all the activities on offer this year at the annual Activities Fair. Teachers were on hand to talk to students about over 30 activities and clubs including rock-climbing, fashion, basketball, cross-country running and Model United Nations (MUN) Club. A popular choice is MUN, where students typically simulate UN committees and develop skills in research, public speaking, debating, as well as critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities.

David from New York, a returning CATS student is in his senior year, has signed up for three activities: MUN Club, cross country running and Varsity Basketball.

For the clubs and athletics, students are required to commit to daily activities for the semester and on average spend 4-5 hours per week developing skills relating to their chosen extracurriculars.

 

Athletics and Activities Director, Mr Wilkins commented:

“This is a great opportunity for students to learn about what we have to offer. They can try new things and develop their talents, helping to build their profile for their future academic careers.”
