Clubs & Activities

James Gibbons School provides students with a wide range of extracurricular pursuits to help students become responsible citizens and develop character education skills. This page describes a few of the many clubs and activities offered by our school. 

Student Leadership

Students at James Gibbons are encouraged to volunteer for leadership activities in one or more of the following ways:

  • Student announcers
  • AMA Safety Patrols
  • Kindergarten helpers
  • Office helpers
  • Library helpers
  • Assembly hosts



School Choir

Many students join the school choir, practising hard at lunch to learn the words to many songs and become successful performers. They are given the opportunity to perform at our School Winter Concert and always do a fantastic job.

Recycling Club

Students who participate in the Recycling Club learn to appreciate the value of recycling and develop a strong sense of environmental awareness. They collect and clean beverage containers and, in doing so, help contribute funds towards grade six year-end activities.

Running Club

During the months of January and February, all students in grades four through six who wish to participate in Running Club are invited to join. Students practice running on relay teams in the school gymnasium at lunch, and are able to attend the Running Room Indoor Games at the University of Alberta Butterdome in mid-February.

Extra-curricular Activities
