Co-curricular activities

The Gulf Islands International Education Program strongly believes that student involvement and participation in supplementary activities promote a sense of individual and community well-being. Unlike many international programs, the Gulf Islands International Education Program offers a small number of supplementary programs free of charge, while others are partially subsidized, including kayaking, whale watching, the Leadership and Team Building Day at Ruckle Park, at least one ski trip, a bike-riding trip around Stanley Park in Vancouver, Christmas Shopping Day in Victoria, and a skating trip to Vancouver Island.

Island Escapades, a well-known local partner also offers students surf weekends, ski trips, kayaking and camping adventures, and an exciting Eco Adventure Certification Program. The Gulf Islands International Program also partners with other Vancouver Island international programs and offers an annual trip to Whistler Mountain and Spring Break trips to places like Banff and Seattle.

The school offers several sports programs including soccer, basketball, football, tennis, golf, volleyball, and track and field. International students are often attracted to the Leadership Program, the Global Awareness Club, or the Ecology Club.

The community also offers a wide variety of recreational and cultural activities including soccer academies, swim programs, fitness programs, leadership programs, service programs, and theatre, music, and dance programs.
