At Bayview College we offer a dynamic and comprehensive co-curricular program intended to enable all students to develop interests, skills and personal qualities that will enrich their lives now and in the future.
Educational Research indicates that students involved with co-curricular activities have enhanced holistic learning experiences, are more socially connected within the school community, and their increased engagement also has a positive impact on academic achievement.
A myriad of components contribute to the reasons why co-curricular activities benefit students academically. One of these reasons is that students learn character-building lessons that they can apply to their study habits and to their lives. Activities such as sport, music, theatre, and leadership teach students how to discipline themselves. The students have a responsibility to the activity and must perform the tasks assigned to them. By participating and persevering in any of these activities, the students gain a sense of self-respect, self-esteem, and self-confidence. Co-curricular activities give Bayview College students pride in their accomplishments, and they learn that if an activity is worth doing, it is worth doing well.
