The Hull High School year has begun, and its many associated clubs and extracurricular activities are underway. Some clubs have started up again after not being able to meet last year because of the coronavirus, and some are back again with new goals for the year, but all can benefit students in some way.
Students can join many clubs, from the National Honors Society and Girls Who Code to Pirate Karaoke Club and Mock Trial.
Grace Grosso, senior class president, expects participation in such groups to increase, saying that “the participation level in clubs and sports will grow because of the setbacks of last year.”
Grosso also noted that she has benefitted tremendously from the activities she has joined.
Katherine Orpen, sophomore class president, agreed, saying that “we are all dying to socialize again. It will be so good for all of Hull’s students to be able to be a part of a community again.”
Ms. Murphy, head of the Mock Trial team, said that her club gives students “lifelong skills” because they can “practice debate, public speaking, and law.”
Ms. Lidington, who heads the club Physics and Stuff, said joining helps students find lifelong friends and discover their interests, as well as “engage in school more.” Another plus is that Physics and Stuff has a hoverboard.
“It’s important to join clubs to diversify who you socialize with after spending so much time at home during COVID,” said Ms. Hillner, who helps lead student government, which plans events and makes decisions about respective classes.
Lucy Peters, the junior class president, encourages students to try new activities. “It is giving students more opportunities to do things,” she said, “a great opportunity trying new things.”
