The school has some extracurricular opportunities like drama, choir, community activities etc. However, I find that most of them are actually linked to the academic assessment of the students. There is hardly any activity that I remember except maybe the sports activities that are not linked to academics. For instance, my daughter played the saxophone prior to enrolling in GLCHS and it was my wish that she would continue while in the school. To my disappointment, I found that the school has no facility for coaching students who are interested in playing a musical instrument.
While Great Lakes is a small school, there are quite a number of extracurricular opportunities offered. My daughter has been involved in the Chorus (choir) since she joined the school. In the chorus, they did a lot of trips, traveling to different churches to sing. I also know that they offer a lot of sports such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, cross country, badminton, etc in different seasons. In each sport, they compete with different schools as well and are part of the OFSAA (Ontario Federation of School Athletic Association). They also have clubs for photography, arts, etc. With this variety, every student can find what they enjoy, and even try new things and become a well-rounded student.
