Club Day 

What is Club Day?

Students can take a self-guided tour of Handsworth's new and existing clubs. These student-created clubs will host individual information booths about their club, and any student interested in joining a club, will have an opportunity to do so. There will be a wide range of clubs for them to choose from, such as the Answer Club, the Robotics Club, and more.

During Club Day students are welcome to come and take a self-guided tour. The individual student-created clubs host information booths, and any student interested in joining a club can choose from over 20 options. There are clubs for a variety of interests, from the Answer Club to the Robotics Club, for instance. Also, students who are interested in creating a new club are asked to speak with the Club Coordinator, Chris Hwang
