School clubs and organizations, are student-based school organizations.
Clubs primarily focus on four aspects: fundraising, community service,
career interest, and interpersonal dynamics (also known as group
dynamics). In order to fully develop the whole person, all students are
required to participate in either a yearlong club or seasonal sport. It is
our philosophy that such participation is vital in developing well-
rounded students, broadening student interests, and encouraging a
strong ownership of Saint Francis High School. Additionally, with
college admission becoming so competitive, colleges are now looking
for students who show participation in school activities beyond the
classroom. In order for a yearlong activity to be counted for a student’s
participation requirement, the club or activity must either be academic,
competitive or service oriented. A strong commitment and weekly
attendance is required.
TYPES OF CLUB
The Science Club is the place for students who are interested in
science to learn about all scopes of science from medicine to
chemistry to physics to the environment. Science Club bridge in-
school and out-of-school learning and foster the development of
skills, such as experimentation, critical thinking, and problem
solving, mounting and preserving the specimens. Rendering school
services in health and sanitation through managing a first aid
squad. Helping the community by way of demonstration on health
and hygiene, improvement of agriculture, eradication of
superstitious belief etc. Publishing school science magazine.
Preparing science albums, Preparing still/Working models on
science topics .Maintaining a bulletin board for displaying science
news .Conducting essay competition on scientific problems.
Arranging science discussions, debate, essay writing, Conducting
workshops Conducting science quiz competitions, etc. Arranging
the science excursions and visits. Arranging science exhibitions,
Film shows and science fairs. Organizing lectures, debates,
seminars, symposia etc.

A science fair experiment is generally a competition where
contestants present their science project, results in the form of a
report, display board, and/or models that they have created. The
science fair is a fair where students present their science project
results in the form of a report, display board, and models that
students have created. Science fairs include students in
elementary, middle and high schools in science and technology
activities. It is so important to motivate students with science.
Because they can share their projects, ideas with their friends,
parents and people who visit the fair. It also contributes to the
social development of students.
Purposes and Objectives of the Organization of Science Fair
1. Science fairs may help in knowing about the methods,
techniques and aid material developed by the individual teacher,
students or institution and deriving benefit by coming into contact
2. Science fairs bring the schools quite close to community and the
3. Science fairs help in providing satisfactory forum and opportunity
for the healthy competition on the individual and the institutional
4. Such forum helps in bringing out the future scientists into lime
light and thus may prove quite helpful in catching them young for
being trained as a skilled and technical personal and inventors for
the growth of the society, nation and mankind.
5. These fairs provide opportunity to the talented or creative
students for the nourishing and nurturing of their creative talents.
6. Science fairs interest in the students for science and thus may
help in making the study of science a joy in itself.
7. From these fairs the students get opportunity to see the
individual or collective performance of other students for being
encouraged and inspired to work hand in the pursuit of science.
8. Science fairs prove a good media and means to the science
students for trying out theory into practice.
9. Science fairs afford opportunity to the students as well as
members of the community to understand the practical application
and utility of science.
In education, the term exhibition refers to projects, presentations,
or products through which students “exhibit” what they have
learned. It play a major role in enhancing the overall development
of students. Every now and then, schools organize exhibitions to
make learning a better and fun experience for students. In schools,
the most common forms of exhibitions are science and arts.
Objectives of exhibition
Promoting interest in Science and Technology among
Encouraging scientific and technological creativity among
Promoting psychomotor skills among school students
through self designed models or simple apparatus.
Encouraging problem solving approach.
A manuscript (abbreviated MS for singular and MSS for plural) is
any document written by hand or typewritten, as opposed to being
mechanically printed or reproduced in some indirect or automated
way. Before the arrival of printing, all documents and books were
manuscripts. Manuscripts are enriched with pictures, border
decorations, elaborately embossed initial letters or full-page
illustrations. The importance of manuscript formatting stems from
being a requirement by publishers, agents, proofreaders and
editors, because it makes your manuscript easier to assess. As a
writer myself, I can tell you that the first thing I do when opening
up a new document on my computer is formatting. The Journal of
the Effective School Project editorial committee will evaluate
articles submitted for publication consideration. Manuscripts must
adhere to the following guidelines to be considered:
1. Length: The manuscript, including references, charts and
tables generally should not exceed ten typewritten pages.
2. Style: Manuscripts must conform to the Publication Manual of
the American Psychological Association (2009, 6th ed.).
3. Cover Letter: Submit a cover letter explaining the relationship
of the article to the theme of the journal. Indicate that the
article represents original material and is not currently under
consideration by any other publication.
4. Cover Page: Include the following information on a separate
sheet: title of the manuscript; author's name, complete mailing
address, business and home phone numbers, institutional
affiliation and address; biographical information about each
author (not to exceed 50 words per author).
5. Abstract: Following the cover page, submit an abstract of 100
to 150 words and short biography of the contributing authors.
6. Photographs: All photos embedded in the manuscript have
participants’ permission to be included in the manuscript for
possible publication. Students who are younger than 18 years
old have guardian consent for their photographs to be
displayed in the manuscript for possible publication.
A magazine is a publication, usually a periodical publication, which
is printed or electronically published (sometimes referred to as an
online magazine). Magazines are generally published on a regular
schedule and contain a variety of content.
School and college magazines are useful in many ways. They have a
great educative value. They encourage students to think and write.
So they develop their writing skills and talent. These magazines are
a means of bringing the ex-students and all the members. In
schools and colleges, students are taught to read books and to
acquire knowledge from the works of great authors. But mere
reading of books is not sufficient for education. So the students are
also taught how to write and express their own ideas in a good
form and in different languages. With this aim in view school and
college magazines are published. They contain a collection of
articles, poems, stories and plays. They are written mainly by the
students and sometimes by teachers and past pupils. In fact, young
talent finds its first exposure through this medium. Magazines are
generally published annually.
An educational field trip can be an integral part of the instructional
program. Good field trips provide participants with firsthand
experience related to the topic or concept being discussed in the
program. They provide unique opportunities for learning that are
not available within the four walls of a classroom. The purpose of
the trip is usually observation for education, non-experimental
research or to provide students with experiences outside their
everyday activities, such as going camping with teachers and their
classmates. The aim of this research is to observe the subject in its
natural state and possibly collect samples. Field trips are most
often done in 3 steps: preparation, activities and follow-up activity.
Preparation applies to both the student and the teacher. Teachers
often take the time to learn about the destination and the subject
before the trip. Activities that happen on the field trips often
include: lectures, tours, worksheets, videos and demonstrations.
Follow-up activities are generally discussions that occur in the
classroom once the field trip is completed. Field trips also provide
students the opportunity to take a break from their normal routine
and experience more hands on learning. Places like zoos and nature
centers often have interactive displays that allow children to touch
plants or animals.
Advantages of School Field Trips
Field trips give students the opportunity to visit new places
and new environment.
For young students, get the opportunity to interact with one
another in a more informal, natural and relax manner.
Through field trips, students learn by actually doing a hands-
Field trips are wonderful opportunities for children or
students to be exposed to places that are not commonly or
normally visited by their family.
Field trips are effective methods to teach difficult or
complicated subjects like biology, physics, chemistry or
An excursion is a trip by a group of people, usually made for leisure,
education, or physical purposes. It is often an adjunct to a longer
journey or visit to a place, sometimes for other (typically work-
related) purposes. Public transportation companies issue reduced
price excursion tickets to attract business of this type. Often these
tickets are restricted to off-peak days or times for the destination
concerned. Short excursions for education or for observations of
natural phenomena are called field trips. One-day educational field
studies are often made by classes as extracurricular exercises, e.g.
to visit a natural or geographical feature. The term is also used for
short military movements into foreign territory, without a formal
announcement of war.
Purpose of excursion
The purpose of the excursion department is to provide students
within the MSW program an opportunity to learn hands-on through
an internship work experience. Students that complete the
foundation field practicum which focuses on generalist social work
practice arrive in the advanced year with a solid knowledge of
theoretical frameworks that guide generalist practice, with an
understanding and acceptance of social work values and ethics, and
with well developed skills related to beginning social work practice.
Field education in the foundation years provides the student with
an opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge of social service
systems in urban settings, apply theoretical knowledge to urban
problems such as poverty, and to determine how to access
appropriate community resources. In addition, students learn to
communicate oral, written, and technological information
reflecting professional social work skills.
Advantage of excursions
(i) They provide direct source of knowledge and acquaint the
student with first hand information.
(ii) They provide an opportunity to the student for development of
his aesthetic sense.
(iii) By such excursion students become interested in the exploration
of their environment.
(iv) They help to develop in students a love for nature and to
acquaint them with the real happiness in the outside world.
(v) It helps in development of power of observations, exploration,
judgment and drawing inferences, problem solving ability of
(vi) It helps in developing qualities of resourcefulness, self-
confidence, initiative and leadership amongst students.
(vii) It helps in developing cooperative attitude and various others
(viii) It helps in proper utilization of leisure.
(ix) It motivates the students for self-study and self-activity.
A study conducted by surveying school-age students in the National
Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health revealed that 70% of
adolescents are involved in some form of extracurricular activities.
Other studies have shown being involved in extracurricular
activities reduces the likelihood of dropping out of school,
likelihood of committing a criminal offense, and leads to higher
educational retainment and success and achievements in school
work, not to mention that the greatest advantage of participating
in at least one of these activities is the decrease in anti-social
behaviors and students growing up to be more successful in
communication and relationships. Involvement in after school clubs
and extracurricular activities is beneficial in a variety of ways for
the K-12 population. For example, school clubs can offer a place to
form relationships and foster learning, and this was demonstrated
with multiple groups. Research including students with disabilities
involved in extracurricular activities show that they were more
likely to have friends than those who were not involved. Similar
findings with racial and ethnic minorities and immigrant
adolescents showed that minority, first, and second generation
adolescents were less likely than their counterparts to have friends
and be engaged in relationships, however, extracurricular activities
facilitated socialization. Thus, being involved in activities outside of
school increases student’s chances of creating friendships.
Furthermore, extracurricular activities increase positive self-
development, regardless of where the activities take place (at
school or away from school) Likewise, female adolescents involved
in school based extracurricular activities had higher self-esteem
than those not involved. The overall findings demonstrate that
involvement in activities; whether it be sports, clubs, or school-
based programs, have a positive impact on the participant’s life.
