Programs

Co-Curriculars

Join the Club!

At Trafalgar, “co-curriculars” aren’t just an add-on, after-thought, or luxury: they are considered an integral part of our program. Participation in clubs, teams, and committees is one of the core tenets of Traf’s vision for individual growth.

List of 17 items.

  • Art Club

    Art club is an activity that is open to everyone! Students are welcome to come to the art room, use the materials & tools, and do their own creative work. There is no need to audition, try out, or sign up.
  • Battle of the Books

    Calling all bookworms! Join this team and compete against local schools in a heated clash that will test your knowledge about today’s most-loved young adult page-turners. Bragging rights for the winner.
  • Choir

    Show off your pipes as a member of our choir. Every week, Traf’s collective of vocalists meets to bring a capella versions of pop, folk, classical, and gospel tunes to life. Two large performances take place every year, along with lots of smaller opportunities in between!
  • Debating Team

    The debating team is a beacon for those who want to share their big ideas. Twice a week, junior- and senior-level orators come together to volley opinions, become prolific public speakers, and eventually participate in tournaments both locally and abroad.
  • Earth Club

    Mother Earth extends her thanks to the earth club! This co-curricular has spearheaded the school’s compost initiative, clothing swaps, litterless lunches, sustainable consumption workshops, outdoor cleanup initiatives, and many more efforts that support an eco-friendly lifestyle.
  • Girls for the Cure

    Girls for the Cure brings together over 2,000 students from Montreal girls’ school to walk to Molson Stadium at McGill, raising awareness and funds for women-related cancers.

The choice is yours: forums include world events, historical happenings, and topics based on popular lit.
  • Senior Band

    The Senior Band is comprised of all students in Music III, IV, and V. This ensemble meets weekly both during forum time and after school, rehearsing a variety of fun and challenging repertoire to be performed at school concerts and events, as well as competitions and festivals. Every second year, Senior Band members participate in a music trip. Past trips have included New York City, Boston, Halifax, and Orlando.
