Upper School Clubs

The Chapel Green was full of Upper School Gold and Blue Cohort students for the past two Wednesdays. With 40+ clubs and the possibility of more, student leaders were excited to share about their clubs with fellow classmates who are considering what to get involved in this year.

For many, social distancing will impact club events and projects that they hoped to explore this year, but each club is adapting to make their time together the best experience possible. Model United Nations (MUN) members, Ayres ‘22, Leo ’22, and Isabel ‘22 wonder what MUN events will look like this year, but say the normal MUN format is easily transferred to an online format. Parker ‘22, who leads the environmental club said she and fellow club members will move a majority of their meetings outside to enjoy nature and to get to know each other. The Stock Market Club co-leaders, Andrew T. ‘21 and Andrew F. ‘21 are running a digital stock management competition and having outside presenters teach about the stock market on Zoom.

Social connection and passion about important topics drive many students to join clubs at Breck. Kyana ‘22, Fiona ‘22, and Lulu ‘22 of GSA are excited to have open discussions with their peers and to connect with teachers and students about LGBTQ+ topics. Kevin ‘24 shared that the fundraising club is a place where he can get involved and support great organizations like Feeding America and the Salvation Army. Ellie ‘22 from Student Council and Kyndal ‘22 from SDIC and Race in America are looking forward to club meeting times to learn new things, raise awareness, push forward education about race in America, and see friends from Blue Cohort. 

More information about how clubs are adapting and the activities they are doing will be posted in our news throughout the year.
