【Club Fair】Choose What You Love at the Club Fair!丨华外IHP国际高中
On April 27, 2022, IHP students had a chance to explore club and activity options for the rest of the semester. The third term of clubs and activities will begin May 9th, or Week 13, and will run through week 19.
Clubs, like Frisbee and Dance, were offered in both previous terms. Other clubs, like Volunteering and Games and Brain Training, were also offered, but have changed focus or have been updated. Splitting the semester into several terms allows the school to offer a greater variety of activities. In addition, students are encouraged to branch out and try new activities, without needing to commit to one activity for an entire semester.
★ The club fair was hosted by Mr. Rittmann.
The goal of these clubs is to get students out of the classroom and broaden their experiences. Frisbee, or Ultimate, is another way for students to be active and engaged in a new and popular sport. Dance allows students to express themselves physically and through music. Volunteering is a way for students to engage with the community around them and contribute in a meaningful way. In Games and Brain Training, students have the freedom to try out multiplayer games, off-screen, and engage on social and strategic levels. Certain games focus on challenging students and can enhance mental acuity.
Our new Cooking, Investing, 3D Printing, and Painting and Pottery clubs all represent options for students to engage in meaningful activities. Economics is a very popular class and investing is an avenue for students to apply their theoretical knowledge. 3D printing is a fantastic application of scientific knowledge and is becoming an increasingly relevant and crucial technology. Of course, everyone loves to eat, but learning how to cook is a great life skill! Painting and Pottery will give students a creative outlet and a chance to express themselves in new ways.
Finally, Basketball and Badminton are very popular among students. One of the missing elements of simply enjoying these sports, is a sense of commitment and discipline. The basketball team was formed with this in mind, instating requirements for students who want to participate and setting a rigorous training schedule. Following the success of the basketball team, we hope to give the same opportunities to students who would like to devote more of their focus and time to Badminton.
The focus of these activities is to give students opportunities to explore and develop their interests. We hope to continue offering activities that will be attractive to any type of student. The key is for students to make choices based on their interests, which will allow them to make better decisions for their future.
