Sharing an interest or working together on an activity are wonderful ways to get involved, make friends, learn leadership skills and have fun.
In clubs, girls find kindred spirits who share their interests. Together, they meet regularly, plan initiatives and sometimes attend special events.
In clans, girls come together for friendly competition in groups that span the grades. Students might be competing to support a charity or simply playing high-spirited games against another clan. Either way, the shared experience brings girls together in a fun and supportive environment.
There are eight clans in both the Junior School and Senior and Middle School, named for our Scottish roots.
For generations, clans have provided a forum for friendly sporting competition, charitable work, spirit-building and the transmission of traditions. Students enjoy belonging to their clan, a small cross-grade group within the school community that promotes school spirit.
Every student and every faculty member belongs to a clan, and Junior Clans are twinned with clans in the Senior and Middle School. Students moving from the Junior School to the Senior and Middle School will automatically be placed in their twinned Senior School clan. Clan placement is also determined by a sibling’s clan or a related alumna’s clan.
Each Senior and Middle School clan has a Senior Leader, elected by its own members, and an elected representative from Grade 8.
