South Carleton's Athletic Program is supported by a strong Intramural Program that includes such activities as touch football, 3 on 3 basketball, volleyball, floor hockey, mini sticks, indoor soccer, dodgeball, badminton, and a very popular daily weight room club during the lunch period for all students. Listen for the announcements, register your team, and amaze your friends while you burn off some energy at lunch. Please see any of the Phys Ed staff for more information.
The Jester is published at the end of each school year. Currently, production of The Jester is a credit course at SCHS. The yearbook adviser/teacher is Ms. Cation.

SC made a difference last year! Here are a few of the great causes we supported:
- We helped Richmond sponsor a Syrian refugee family.
- We held a successful canned food drive for the Stittsville and Richmond Food Cupboards
- We held a warm clothing drive to support homeless youth in Ottawa
- We raised money to support the fire relief efforts in Fort McMurray, Alberta
- We joined forced with "The Green Team" and recycled almost 4 thousand batteries. The equivalent ZINC was sent as zinc tablets to third world countries.
- We supported a local family that had fallen on hard times with almost $500 in cash and gift cards.
- We supported Christie Lake Kids with a monetary donation.
This year we hope to run a "Relay for Life" to raise funds for Cancer research and hold a multicultural awareness fair that will support education and health initiatives in third world countries.
SC HOPE meets Mondays at lunch in room 15. New members are always welcome. Come on out and see how you can make a difference! See Ms. Pattison for more information.

The Rainbow Alliance provides a safe place for students to meet, support each other, talk about issues related to sexual orientation, and work to end homophobia. The Rainbow Alliance provides confidentiality to students who are struggling with their identity as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or questioning, but is also open to heterosexuals. Their meetings are a great opportunity to meet interesting people and have some fun! Meetings are held every Wednesday at lunch in room 26. Please see Ms. Clark for more information.
The Tech Crew at SC provides the highest quality of lights and sound in the theatre. Junior members are trained so they can start running shows as soon as possible. They are constantly at work either running shows, rehearsing, or fixing and adjusting equipment. Meetings are held Tuesdays at lunch in room 25. Please see Mr. Eyamie for more information.
Coffee Houses are the culmination of months of hard work for the musicians and technicians. Contemporary music is performed in a relaxed café-style setting. For 2 hours families and members of the community experience a wide variety of music from artists such as Our Lady Peace, Goo Goo Dolls, Gorrilaz, as well as a variety of original tracks from our homegrown SC talent pool. Audiences are usually in the 150-300 range. Proceeds from the Coffee Houses fund a musicians' scholarship which helps deserving graduates seeking post secondary schooling in music, audio recording and sound engineering. Please see Mr. McIntyre for more information.
Leadership Camp and Leadership Planning Committee (LPC) [top]
Leadership Camp is a phenomenal event that takes place every November for three days. Students spend these days at school, overnight, learning and sharpening the various leadership skills they acquire throughout the weekend. The Leadership Planning Committee is a group of motivated South Carleton students who organize and run this wonderful camp. This camp is an extraordinary experience filled with laughter and inspirational memories. We hope to see you at the next camp. Love, LPC. Please see Mrs. Francis or Mrs. Scott-Thomas for more information.
Poetry in Voice is a national poetry recitation contest for high school students in Canada. Participants work to bring their own intelligence, perspective, and experience to the poems they choose for recitation. As they build a connection with those poems they choose, they share ideas and inspiration with their like-minded literary peers. Local and regional competitions provide an opportunity to share poetry in wider circles. Students come to know their poems "by heart", and will carry them for life. Please see Ms. Panabaker or Mr. Brooks for more information.

Please see Mr. Eyamie, Mr. Bedard, or Ms. Kortko for more information.
