Clubs and Activities

STUDENT ACTIVITIES

 

The activities program is designed to offer opportunities for exploring and developing a student's range of interests and to help the student develop leadership and poise.  Participation in regular activities enables students to learn how to better plan and work with others.

 

Clubs meet before or after school.  All clubs must have on file a constitution, list of officers, working budget, and membership roster.  Each club should perform at least one service project per semester.  All projects and fund raising activities must be approved by the principal and scheduled in advance on the school calendar.  Involvement in organizations helps students develop skills in working together with other students toward a common interest or purpose. It also allows for the practical application of ideas and information gained in the classroom.  Being involved is one way to ensure that time spent at Swansea High School is beneficial.

No school club or group meeting may be announced without the approval of the faculty sponsor in charge of the activity.  No meeting will be held without the presence of the FACULTY SPONSOR.  This includes meetings, practices, decorating, clean-up, or other group activities.  Students must be supervised at all times for safety reasons.
