The extensive co-curricular program is embedded into the life of the school and offers a variety of teams and clubs in each division. Students are expected to participate fully in school life. Breakaway trips, team sports, field trips, musical and theatrical productions, student clubs, leadership opportunities and community service programs provide mind-broadening, skill-building and horizon-expanding experiences. By venturing out of their comfort zone, our students learn to adapt to different situations, rise to new challenges, take on new responsibilities and discover new passions — skills that will serve them well beyond HTS.
At HTS, students participate in the co-curricular life in many different areas; music, drama, athletics, community service and leadership are the pillars of our co-curricular program and students often participate in most, if not all of these areas. Students also have an opportunity to take their classroom knowledge and extend it during our after school clubs. There are Science Olympics, public speaking and creative writing contests across all divisions. There are camp trips to Kilcoo, Bark Lake and Wanakita and language trips to St. Donat. Cultural city trips include Ottawa, Quebec City, Boston and Washington. Community service opportunities abound as far away as Tanzania and Belize and as close as our own backyard.
Student leadership comes in many forms, including our school Prefects, House Captains, Club Leaders and Student Council. Under the guidance of experienced teachers and advisors, HTS students are encouraged to challenge themselves, try something new and pursue their strengths. The unique opportunities that are available at HTS allow our students to personalize their journey.
