One of the first all-school events at Mater Dei this year was club day which took place during lunch on Thursday August 25th and Friday August 26th.  Club day is one of the few events in which students from all classes can be in charge and reach out to their fellow students. There are tables set up all around the Fatima Court and students are assigned a specific table for their club. The clubs at Mater Dei vary greatly; some deal with serious topics while others are just for fun.

Some clubs at Mater Dei deal with the arts and are an easy way to be involved in an arts program on campus. One of the arts clubs that has been around the longest is the Drama Club and they are putting on a performance of Our Lady of Kibeho in October. “I’m excited to see new and old students work together to make something new and unique,” says senior Glenn Quiroga, president of the Drama Club. Some other clubs that incorporate the arts are Choir Club, Band Club, and Dance Club.

Other clubs are more focused on academics and technology such as the Academic League and Coding Club. The Academic League is moderated by Mr. Heineman and competes every few weeks against other schools. The Coding Club is relatively new and even encourages students who have no experience to join and learn coding. These and more academic clubs open up opportunities for those students who want to be involved in academic activities after school.

Each of the clubs had the opportunity to decorate signs letting students easily locate clubs they were interested in investigating.

Lastly, there are several clubs which promote a certain cause the students are passionate about such as the Pro-Life Club or the new Harambe Club. The Pro-Life Club has been around for many years and is moderated by Ms. Salazar. The club stands for life and against abortion and has several events throughout the school year to promote their support for the cause. The new Harambe Club got over 200 members on only the first day of club day, which is an impressive number considering there are only about 700 students at the school.

This year, club day was successful due to the diversity available for students. There is a club that fits all student’s interests and it is highly encouraged that if students decided not to join any clubs this year, they find one next year they can be a part of.
