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 a range of co-curricular activities have enhanced holistic learning experiences, are more socially connected within the school community. Their increased engagement also has a positive impact on academic achievement.
A myriad of components contributes 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, service and leadership teach students how to discipline themselves. The students have a responsibility for 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.
