The Marist After School Activities Program provides opportunities for students to engage in enrichment activities in our safe and supportive environment.
Embedded in our school philosophy and culture is the concept of ‘balance’. In the context of our school community, balance can mean many things, but at its core is the notion that academic growth is only one aspect of an individual’s development – we must also find time and space for social, physical, emotional, and spiritual development. MBIS students are provided with a wide range of clubs and activities, through which they can grow and pursue their interests.
A common thread linking all these activities is opportunity – new, interesting, engaging and motivating means for students to become more inquiring; more knowledgeable; more responsible; more caring; better communicators. We want our students to take on new challenges and learn from them.
We encourage a high level of participation in school-based activities and organizations. We do not force students to participate – but most do (in fact, sometimes the hardest job is getting them to go home!). We are proud of our students and school community, and believe that it reflects the breadth, depth, and quality of education at MBIS.
