Induction of Clubs & Socities

Induction of Clubs & Socities

In recent years, Advaith’s student societies, clubs and organizations have garnered real prominence within school education. From sport and recreation clubs, to art, culture and theatre groups, community service to societies, they all help shape the school experience of students and are an opportunity for students to better their professional and personal growth.

Meet and make friends with like-minded individuals

During your studies you’ll meet people in your classes but there can be no guarantees you’ll find people with the same interests and hobbies as you without signing up for clubs or societies. Some of the people you meet in these clubs will become friends for life. What’s more, your ability to network without any conscious effort will improve as well. Depending on which society or club you’re a part of, you might find yourself in a position where you’re able to make.

You could have the opportunity to handle real responsibilities

The majority of student societies, clubs and organizations are chaired by students, who manage and oversee the internal and external activities and events that happen, as well as the funding and allocation of resources and facilities as mentors. Each year, students have the opportunity to be elected by their peers to run for committee roles, such as president, vice president, raising and giving secretary, wellbeing officer – every role can offer a real sense of achievement. It’s also where you can improve your experience and knowledge of valuable professional skills such as event planning and organization – all of which have serious values and can help set you up nicely for exciting positions later in life.

You’ll get a better sense of what it means to have a good work/life balance

Being part of a student society lets you take a break from the demands of studying and assignments. But it’s also where you get to know yourself better and learn what it means to manage your time carefully between your degree and other interests. Knowing you have only a set amount of time to dedicate to studying or writing an assignment can be a real motivator.

You’ll get out of your comfort zone

Having the courage to take that first step and put yourself out there is pretty admirable. While your ultimate goal of studying at school is to graduate with high merits, Advaith School is also a valuable opportunity to try something new – so don’t be afraid to get out there.

Being part of a society or organization help your CV stand out from the rest

Being part of a student society demonstrates your commitment to other activities outside of your academics, and if you’ve had a position on the committee then you can definitely use this to your advantage when it comes to applying to universities.

Give examples of memorable moments from your time at the club. For example, if you were on the board, was there a time when you had to make difficult decisions for the club’s resources and facilities? It’s things like this which can make great discussion points in your interview.
