Global Awareness

The Global Awareness club believes that if we do not understand what is happening in the world around us, we will be unsuccessful in our attempts to make the world a better place. We need to equip ourselves and others with the knowledge so that we can turn this awareness into action.

The Global Awareness Club strives to get its members involved on the local and international level of social participation. Through the discussion of political, economic, social as well as environmental issues, Global Awareness Club seeks to expand the perception of its members. In addition to discussion, Global Awareness Club hosts multiple fundraising events for pertinent issues and participates in local projects.

Outdoor Club

The Outdoors Club started this fall at Rick Hansen, when some of the grade 12 students decided they would like to start a club to leave as a legacy at the school.  It is a club open to anyone interested in exploring the natural world through recreation.  In December we went rock climbing at the local gym: Project Climbing Center and the students had a blast.  This January we are going on a snow-shoeing trip to Cypress Mountain.  This year we hope to go: skiing, hiking, and mountain biking.  

Environmental Awareness Club

The Green Team is a new club at Rick Hansen Secondary School. It has been created to offer an opportunity for like-minded students to help improve the Rick Hansen environment through increased focus on the school’s waste habits, its green spaces and by passing on information to their peers about how to best treat their environment in and out of school. We meet weekly, at lunch, to discuss initiatives, our goals and our progress.
