Clubs & Activities
Getting involved in extra-curricular activities is an important way to contribute to the school, develop skills, meet new friends, and to make your stay at Allendale as rewarding as possible.

Every student at Allendale is member of a House Group. Each House is named after a Canadian Prime Minister and consists of students in grades seven, eight and nine. Students meet in their House Groups to take part in school-wide activities and events. During the school year, students will work in House Groups for activities such as intramurals, the Walk-Crawl-Run event, Remembrance Day activities and the Edmonton Food Bank Drive. This is a wonderful way to get to know students in other grades and to develop real pride in both the House and Allendale School.
Intramurals are run during the lunch hour and are planned with the intention of providing a non-competitive, activity to students who would like to participate in their House Groups. They run September through June during lunch time. Numerous activities will be planned and may include events such as Omnikin Ball, Infinity Ball, beach ball volleyball, basketball, floor hockey, flag football, lacrosse, soccer, etc.
