Senior Chriss Kamau says clubs are a good thing for extracurricular activities because they keep you busy after school instead of doing nothing or playing video games at your house.   For the definition of a club, Chriss said in his own words, “A club is something you’re into as a group and you’re working together to reach a common goal.”In his opinion, Chriss thinks that this school does have interesting clubs because he was in Robotics Club and he actually liked it since building electric or manual machines might sound like an interesting thing to him. Chriss Kamau  thinks the school “needs more clubs.”
