Extracurricular activities provide a great opportunity for students to make new friends and develop a sense of belonging. We hope they will learn many meaningful lessons that come from being involved in a school club.
Hillcrest Spirit Squad
The Spirit Squad at Hillcrest is a student leadership group. We meet once a week during instructional time (usually B block) to plan school events like dances or spirit assemblies. In general, Hillcrest has one major spirit assembly per term. Highlander Games, our version of the International Gathering of the Clans, is held in October.
As well as these events, Spirit Squad organizes dances , promotes Wacky Wednesdays, and helps out with other school functions like the Terry Fox Run and Rembrance Day. The school Clans also participate in a Spirit Point competition throughout the year. Teams are awarded Spirit Points for various citizenship activities around the school. Each term there is a winning clan that receives an ice cream party and a Dance Dance Revolution party
Spirit Squaddies, as they like to be called, must attend all meetings and are responsible for any work missed in class. Squaddies also report back to their classes about various activities.
