 ​LAT Club Fair:

For the first time in Loretto history, the Abbey hosted a Club Fair on October 18th. After first period, students had the opportunity to walk around the gymnasium and look at all the clubs offered at the school.


With over 20 clubs present, it was an action-packed event, with a variety of clubs ranging from Model UN to Abbey Eats. Sarah Toews, a grade 10 student was “surprised with how many clubs there actually are” and remarked that the club fair was “a great opportunity to see all the different clubs.”


The club heads created poster boards to advertise their club, some of which took about three hours to make, according to Sophie Krokhine, head of the Neuroscience Club. Sign-up sheets were also available and some clubs even dressed up for this special event, such as the Chinese Club Leaders.


Holding an event where students could learn more about clubs provided a chance for students who missed announcements to get exposure to the different clubs offered at the Abbey. With the help of the Club Fair, club leaders saw their numbers rise dramatically. The Science Club now “has about 200 members and most of them did not even know that there was Science Club before,” said Ms. Musalem, who helped organize the Club Fair.


Clubs offer a feeling of belonging within the school community and provide chances for those with similar interests to come together to bring new ideas and initiatives to the school. Joining a club also allows students who are new to the school to feel more comfortable and the Club Fair did exactly that by exposing them to opportunities they might have interest in.


Overall, students and club leaders both agree that Club Fair was a great interactive way to showcase the many extra-curriculars offered at the school and to get more students involved. Thank you to Ms. Musalem, her student helpers, Ms. Bartolini, the club leaders, and the teacher moderators for this successful event!​
