CLUBS! TEAMS! CREWS! GROUPS!
Extra-curricular activities are a valuable part of the school's education program. Our school is proud to offer a range of school-based structured organizations for additional school learning. These include many athletic activities and clubs that extend beyond the normal school hours and operate under the supervision of a staff member.
Sports and athletic activities are competitive, individual or team activities which are sponsored by the school and governed by the Surrey Secondary Schools' Athletic Association. Clubs are structured groups of students who come together on a regular basis for a specifically defined and approved purpose.
School District Policy requires that information regarding clubs be sent to you so that you have the opportunity to approve your child's involvement in such activities. Please view the list of clubs below that are available at Johnston Heights Secondary School and a brief description of their purpose.
Parents who require further information about any of the extra-curricular activities are invited to contact school office staff. If parents wish to have their child(ren) excluded from any of the available activities, they should send a written request to the school administration.
At Johnston Heights we have a wide array of clubs, teams, and groups to participate in! Below is a list of some of the options for 2022-2023!
