LCC Reads is an annual high school activity that runs throughout the year. In March, the LCC Reads Committee, made up of students, teachers and the head librarian, votes on a novel to be read by all high school students over the summer. Students then discuss the novel in their English classes, culminating in a final student assembly in the fall. Immediately afterwards, students and teachers can begin nominating their favourite novels for the following year.
Middle & Senior School students are welcome to join the LCC Reads Committee. Committee members are responsible for planning the author visit in the fall, selecting the LCC Reads text (including reading the three shortlisted titles over March break) and promoting the LCC Reads book in the spring. This is the ideal activity for readers who love to promote reading. In order to be eligible to select the book in March, you must attend 75 percent of the meetings beforehand.
This activity is for students who are interested in broadcast journalism. The group is responsible for conducting interviews, as well as filming a variety of school activities and events. Students are also involved in editing and producing the LCC TV segments.
The Middle School Play is a theatre group where all Middle School students are welcome. There are several jobs allocated to students: they may choose to act, be part of tech and crew, stage managers, makeup and hair, costumes and/or sets.
A play is chosen every year and students put together a production for parents and students. Plays are geared towards the Middle school age group.
The focus of the group is for students to get comfortable on stage, develop their acting/tech abilities, make new friends and have fun!

Throughout the year, the group organizes a variety of community service activities, as well activities for Halloween and Valentine’s Day for their peers.

Model United Nations is a simulation of the UN General Assembly. Middle School students step into the shoes of ambassadors from UN member states to debate current issues on the organization’s agenda using friendly topics. While playing their roles as ambassadors, student “delegates” make speeches, prepare draft resolutions, negotiate with allies and adversaries and try to resolve conflicts in the interest of all. We simulate small-scale MUN throughout the year in order to achieve international cooperation and resolve problems that affect countries all over the world.

Students can come once or regularly, no questions asked!
