This week, Invicta hosted its annual Clubs and Societies Fair. The fair allows students and teachers of clubs and societies, of which there are a multitude to choose from, to recruit new members. The range of clubs varies from Beekeeping Club to Afro-Caribbean Society and Whole School Choir to Netball Club. While attending the fair, I was struck by the significant turnout from all year groups, as students enthusiastically signed up for clubs in order to try something new or supplement one of their existing interests. In addition, the completion of students’ POP decisions highlighted the wealth of opportunity students have to get involved in extra-curricular activities at Invicta - whether it be recreational or to gain experience and qualifications.
Ayn Rand said, “The ladder of success is best-climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity,” and I firmly believe the opportunities offered to us as students make a major contribution to our collective and individual successes. During my seven years at Invicta, I have benefitted enormously from the options I have chosen; they have enhanced my self-development and enabled me to give back to others.
As the Year 7 Leadership Fair takes place next week, I look forward to seeing how the leadership opportunities at Invicta shapes each year group.
