Co-Curricular Activities: Middle School

The Middle School has a wide range of clubs and activities designed to enrich the Havergal experience.

Middle School is a unique and exciting time that celebrates, supports and nurtures students through developmentally-appropriate instruction, activities and opportunities in and out of the classroom. During this time, students build their personal and academic toolkits in order to be well-prepared for the Senior School. They have the chance to develop new interests and share their passions with others. Co-curriculars allow for both cross-grade and faculty and staff interactions. Some clubs even offer students the chance to compete on a local and a global stage.


Discover Your Interests

The breadth of co-curricular programs offered in the Middle School are as diverse as are the students’ interests. At Havergal, the term is co-curricular because the activities go hand-in-hand with academics. Students view these activities as life at the school, rather than an “extra.” Middle School students are welcome to propose new clubs based on their particular interests, which helps them to develop their independence and sense of self. As a member of the Coalition of Single Sex Schools of Toronto (COSSOT), students have many opportunities to interact beyond the classroom and with other member schools in organized co-ed settings.
