Clubs and Activities at Blake

Blake students from Grades 1 through 6 have the chance to take part in a variety of supervised clubs. These clubs are offered throughout the year—some are seasonal—and run during recesses or before and after school. 

Please note that our list is not exhaustive; if you’re looking for more information about clubs, contact the appropriate teacher or the school’s head office. You can also check out Blake’s calendar of events at the school’s website.
