New Clubs for 2019-2020

Luke Mandel, Online Editor

There are several new clubs to choose from this year: The Philosophy Club, advised by Mr. Adams, provides a space for students to probe philosophical issues. Another club that has taken off since its inception is the Birding Club which meets in room 305 on Fridays to observe and study birds. Members engage in collaborative learning and bring in professional bird watchers to help explore their avian interests.
Bullet Journaling is a new club in which students can get together to share ideas for and design planners that extend beyond the boundaries of the school day. This club is advised by Mrs. Duffy. For the sailors at Strath Haven, there is the new Sailing Club advised by Mrs. Dunning.
The latest club to form is the Committee for Educational Speakers (CES) which is advised by Mr. Haney and meets in room 212 on Thursdays. CES was responsible for organizing the town hall last May with Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon, and aims to bring more educational speakers to Strath Haven. The goal is to include a range of speakers from professors to college students, and might possibly include performances. The club will try to organize at least one large event with a high-profile individual as well.
