club and societies

 

“I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.”

Groucho Marx

If, like Groucho Marx, you have reservations about joining an existing club at St Alban’s, you may submit a proposal to start a new club. In fact, it is obligatory to join at least one club or society, adding “culture”, to round off the mix of academics and sport. And for those who are neither academic nor sporting stars, there is always a niche of excellence, a natural “home” to be sought under the banner of “Clubs and Societies”. Cultural Week and Cultural Day provide an ideal opportunity for creativity and talent to be aired, acknowledged and appreciated.

Clubs and societies fall into two broad categories: those that are purely cultural and those that are service-oriented. Some, like the Photographic Club, cover both aspects.

visual art

Visual Art at St Alban’s College starts in Form 1 as a chosen Module. In Form 1 and Form 2 we focus on laying down the basics in creative thinking and the implementation thereof in actual artworks. Clubs and societies fall into two broad categories: those that are purely cultural and those that are service-oriented. Some, like the Photographic Club, cover both aspects.
