Clubs at Appleby allow students to dig deeper into an area of passion or to discover a new interest, all while developing leadership skills and an appreciation of community involvement. Participation in the club program is an expectation for all students and there is an exceptional choice of experience and interests from which to choose. The club programme at Appleby influences the culture of the school as students share and celebrate their interests and achievements."
