London Christian has a number of clubs and committees, in which students can utilize their talents, learn new skills, explore their interests, and build community. These are introduced at an assembly early in the school year. They include:Ark Aid
This year, you have the opportunity to be a part of a group of 12 students and staff that go to the Ark Aid Street Mission in dowtown London from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m, the second Tuesday of each month. The work and ministry of Ark Aid is dedicated to creating tools and services to help people get back on their feet. It helps to serve individuals on the margins of society. The volunteers express Christian faith and love practically through a short devotional time, serving a meal, cleaning up and doing dishes, and interacting with participants through conversation or by playing various games, such as pool or euchre.
Our assembly committee plays an important role in nurturing our school culture. It consists of three staff advisors and several students. There are three different components (groups) in the assembly committee.
- Planning team: these students are responsible for helping to organize our school assemblies and chapels which are held approximately twice a month. This entails deciding on topics, speakers, format, etc.
- Tech team: these students help to create and execute the video and PowerPoints used during the assembly
- Praise team: these students meet regularly to work on improving their skills and to practice a variety of songs. When they feel confident enough, they participate in leading the music in chapels and assemblies throughout the year.
Book club is for students who enjoy reading and discussing novels. Students and several staff commit to reading approximately ten novels during the year and discussing each one during a lunch meeting.Chamber Choir
We have a number of organized intramural activities that occur during our noon hours. The fall season sees students and staff playing bocce ball as they compete for the Kit Kat Cup. Euchre tournaments are popular during the winter months. In the spring there is a ball hockey tournament that rivals the Stanley Cup playoffs as students and staff compete for our own Timbit Cup.Physics Club
Physics club consists of students who are interested in applied science. They begin with building a cardboard boat (cardboard plus some duct tape) and sailing it during a noon hour competition. They then go on to build catapults and undertake other interesting physics applications.
Our yearbook committee is responsible for the annual publication of our school’s yearbook. It consists of two staff advisors and six to eight students, two of whom serve as co-editors. The committee meets after school several times a month from October to June.
During the winter months, some students and staff play euchre with the hope of winning the Toblerone trophy. Others seek to checkmate each other in challenging games of chess.
