G-25 Co-Curricular Activities

Date Mar 2022
Review Mar 2027

The District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) recognizes that co-curricular activities are an important part of the school experience of elementary and secondary students. Co-curricular activities support students to express themselves, build their skills and talents and can also broaden their interests. A diverse, co-curricular program supports students to see their identities, cultures and lived experiences reflected in the activities which builds a sense of belonging to the school community.

Student voice, paired with the individual skills and talents of staff, contribute to the type and range of activities that are offered in any given school.

All staff play a vital role in forming positive relationships and creating conditions where students feel valued, safe, accepted, and encouraged to participate and contribute to their school community

The DSBN also recognizes and values the importance of volunteers within its organization. Volunteers with varied backgrounds and unique lived experiences can enhance the co-curricular experience for both students and staff.
