Clubs & Activities

At Vernon Barford School, we believe the educational process involves the growth and development of the whole child.  While we work diligently to ensure high levels of academic learning we also want all of our students to be true BLUES.  Specifically we hope that each of our students are Big Hearted, Leaders, United, Engaged, and Successful.  To help them develop positive habits in these areas we offer a comprehensive program of curricular and extra-curricular activities including:

BLAST (Barford Leadership and Service Team)

The mission of BLAST is to provide ongoing support and leadership to the entire school population by:

  • encouraging leadership through service to our students, our school and our community;
  • encouraging and creating enthusiasm for school activities; and
  • being a contributing voice in our school.

 

MENTORING

Each year we invite Grade 8 and 9 students who desire to be involved to act as mentors for our incoming Grade 7 students.  Being a mentor involves participating in mentor training sessions and working with other mentors to lead mentoring sessions with a small group of grade 7 students.
