New Year 7 pupils were presented with a diverse range of activities at the Clubs and Societies Fair held today.
Pupils and staff were on hand to promote their clubs including; the brand new InspirUS Club, the Junior Debating Society, Canoe Club, History Society and Drama Club, board games club, the Warhammer Club, Armchair Generals and many more.
The event attracted hundreds of pupils who signed up to take part. It offered a great opportunity for older and younger members of the school to come together.
Joining in with clubs and societies is just one area of extracurricular activity offered at LRGS. Activities take place after school or at lunchtimes and, in some cases, at weekends and during holidays. Many of these activities are supported by the Annual Fund, which aims to support the widest possible range of extra-curricular activity to all boys in the school.
Headmaster Dr Chris Pyle said: “It is very often the activities outside the classroom that will give our pupils their first opportunities of leadership and service. Sport, music, drama, outdoor pursuits, Combined Cadet Force, interform rivalries, clubs and societies give them opportunities to learn to work together, learn to take initiative, learn how to win, learn how to lose, and learn what things are more important than winning and losing.”
