Extra-Curricular @ West Humber

ACL: Mrs. L. deBryne
West Humber has a very active student body that participates in many clubs, sports and leadership initiatives throughout the school year. Our Student Leadership Council provides our school with many events throughout the year, including Leadership Certificates and different Leadership Camp opportunities, including Camp Manitou. We also have over 30 clubs for students to participate in, including the Tech Crew, Eco Club, Health and Wellness Committee, Film Club, and Choir, to name a few. For a full list of clubs and activities, please see the table below.

Through participating in school life outside of the classroom, students become a part of the West Humber community, build on their skills and get more out of their education. As well, leadership skills and participation in school activities are important for university and college applications. The leadership skills that students build at West Humber will benefit them throughout their lives.
