Students can work on an artwork of their choosing or may work on artworks from class, especially those that are more intricate and need more time to complete. They are also involved in set design for the Senior School Play. Students who are interested in creating a piece of art for the Round Square art competition have the opportunity to work on it during this time.
The Certificate of Sustainable Global Leadership (CSGL) is an LCC initiative to recognize students who have made environmental and global learning a significant priority throughout their Senior School career. Students voluntarily indicate their wish to be considered for the certificate at the beginning of their grade 11 year. To receive this prestigious recognition, students must:
- Successfully complete the first year of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme
- Complete the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award (considerations will be given to students who cannot complete the gold level due to age)
- Take part in a number of Sustainable Global Leadership Seminars (e.g., the value of international service, the Syrian refugee crisis, the value of global education and a cultural examination of Southeast Asia)
- Submit a reflective piece on a Senior School travel experience, typically based on a student exchange or March break trip
- Write a reflective piece on an environmental initiative that they have been involved in
Coding is fun and simple to learn and is a skill that is becoming an integral part of numerous professional fields. The Coding Club is open to students from grades 7 through 10 who are beginners or advanced. The lessons are all online, so students can progress at their own pace. Beginners have an opportunity to learn easy-to-understand fundamentals, eventually learning how to code animations or simple objects. Advanced students may deepen their current knowledge, learn other languages, or integrate Raspberry Pi and 3D printing into the coding of manufactured objects.
Students are provided with opportunities to learn how to use the LCC Fab Lab to make almost anything. The theme for this year is 2020, the year when Montreal will host the international Fab Lab conference bringing together innovators from labs around the world.
Organized workshops are offered in 2D and 3D design, 3D printing, computer controlled cutting, textile arts, coding, electronics, and other Fab Lab topics. Students document their creative process in order to track the development of their skills which will help them earn certified digital badges recognizing their achievements.
Throughout the year, various professionals are invited to work with students and introduce them to new opportunities. All student projects are exhibited at the LCC Design & Maker Fair.
Graduate Pride is the most senior leadership team and consists of a group of grade 11 students who have been elected by their peers or by their teachers. It includes Head Boy and Head Girl – who act as school ambassadors and represent the school at local and national leadership conferences – house heads, as well as representatives of different areas of school life, such as activities, athletics, environment, arts, Round Square and community service.
Improv focuses on skills that are important for all students. Specifically, the ability to think on your feet , problem solve creatively, communicate effectively, and work as a team. The improv clubs meet weekly to prepare for regional and national tournaments. In 2019 LCC will be hosting the regional tournament and everyone is invited to come watch.
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.
Reach for the Top provides students with the opportunity to compete academically without having to worry about evaluations and grades. Students meet once a week to prepare for games against other schools scheduled in the late winter and spring. During the meetings, students have the opportunity to practice answering questions about a myriad of subjects (literature, film, science, math, sports, geography, history, politics, art, etc.), develop strategies of play, discover team strengths and uncover any team weaknesses.
The Round Square Community Service Club provides students with the chance to explore service opportunities in Montreal while considering international perspectives. The club focuses on grass roots action while addressing the ethos of the Round Square organization. The club meets once per cycle and focuses on student-led initiatives.
The Senior school play is an opportunity for students to be a part of a large-scale theatrical production. There are acting and backstage opportunities (costume design, set design, props creation, lighting and sound). The play is performed in January and students participate in one Saturday rehearsal.
Student Council consists of elected representatives from each grade level in the Middle and Senior School. The Student Council recommends changes in school policy to the headmaster and advocates in the areas of academics, exam schedules, homework issues, course options, the student honour code, dress, nutrition, information technology, and other student rights issues. The Head Girl and Head Boy chair the Friday morning meetings.
