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 2023-2024

Tennis ClubSarah MerxDIVNEET KAURTennis, for me, has been a source of both exhilaration and personal growth. It's a sport that not only hones physical fitness but also sharpens quick thinking and promotes teamwork. I can clearly remember the times of winning and feeling close with my teammates on the court. The potential of a Tennis Club extends beyond the game itself. It's an inclusive space where students of all levels can come together, learn, and grow .Furthermore, studies consistently affirm the positive influence of sports on academic performance. By initiating a Tennis Club, we're not just broadening extracurricular options, but creating a nurturing ground for personal development and forging genuine connections. This endeavor is more than just exciting; it has the power to shift perspectives and instill valuable life skills. And who knows, with the right support, this club could evolve into a formidable tennis team, showcasing our school's athletic prowess. This is an opportunity to not only refine our sportsmanship but also to become better individuals and build enduring friendships. I'm eager to discuss this further and explore the potential this club holds.In our Tennis Club, we've got a dynamic range of activities lined up to ensure everyone gets the most out of their tennis experience
 1. Skill-building Sessions: Regular practice sessions focusing on different aspects of tennis, including serving, volleying, and footwork.(also training people interested in tennis and advices for those who want to pursue the sport)
 2. Friendly Matches and Skill Challenges :to boost up the competitive spirit
 3. Mini Tournaments(depending on the players)
 4. Team-building Exercises and fun games
 5.Fitness and Conditioning Workouts: Include sessions to improve physical fitness, agility, and endurance, which are essential for tennis.
