Our classrooms are just the beginning. At Trafalgar, we offer a full life outside of the classroom, knowing that, for girls, taking risks and trying new things builds resilience and self-esteem—those key characteristics that will carry them through the toughest times. Whether it’s Athletics, the Arts, Community Outreach or Peer Support, we have something to offer you at the Castle.
These programs are fundamental and the outcome is extraordinary.
A Sense of Balance
Student involvement in our co-curricular program is a wonderful aspect of student life at Trafalgar Castle School. However, academics and achieving a sense of balance must be paramount to ensure the success of each and every student at the Castle. As such please note the following guidelines.
Trafalgar students are encouraged to strive towards a number of goals and work on becoming well-rounded young women. It has been determined that in the best interest of our students anyone involved with Robotics or the School Dramatic Production may not participate in winter sports such as Volleyball and Hockey. They will be allowed to be a developmental volleyball or hockey player. Developmental team members may attend practice when it does not conflict with Robotics/School Show and may be called up from time to time to play games (for example, if the team is short players) when it does not conflict. Academic consistency will also play a role in all such decisions.
All developmental sports and alternate positions are considered a full sport for the purpose of House Points and Sports Pins.
Extra-Curricular Commitment Pins
At Trafalgar Castle School we recognize the commitment of our young women to the various co-curricular pursuits we have to offer. In recognition of that our students are eligible to win one of three pins for co-curricular involvement. Students may not win more than one pin in a given year. If students qualify for an Arts of Sports Pin they will receive that pin.
