Glenbrook School offers many great opportunities for everyone to have some fun and interact with others, from different grade levels, who have similar interests and passions! And that’s not just the students! The Glenbrook Staff provide a variety of indoor club activities, with their own interests and talents coming to the fore!
Students have the opportunity to participate in the Grizzlies Ukulele Band as well as the Grizzlies Blues Band. Each club aims to develop vocal skills as well as instrumentation and teamwork by training students how to play in an ensemble. Each year, our bands celebrate their learning by performing their song(s) in front of the school and parent community.
Gym Club runs from November-April and is designed to offer students an opportunity to be active over the lunch recess, to practice commitment and responsibility by signing up and attending, and to learn teamwork and leadership skills.
The activities provide plenty of scope for acquiring new skills, often from like-minded fellow Hub Club members. Very importantly, they provide the opportunity for friendships to be made outside the usual circle!

School Safety Patrols
Students in Grades 5 and 6 have the opportunity to serve the community as A.M.A. School Safety Patrollers. Patrols assist students and families at the crosswalk on the south side of the school field from 8:55am - 9:10am and 3:50pm - 4:05pm on Monday to Thursday, and 8:55am - 9:10am and 12:30pm - 12:45pm on Fridays.
This club is being modeled after Sparking Life, which Dr. Ratey, a psychology professor at Harvard, championed in 2008. Glenbrook's club is 20 minutes of play-based exercise designed to elevate the heart rate. Research has shown that doing 20 minutes of exercise that elevates the heart rate before sitting down to learn can improve learning ability, boost attention and motivation, and optimizes brain function.
The club runs every Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:45AM-9:10AM.
Glenbrook Gourmet Grub Club
Selected students stay after school one day a week to plan, prepare, and execute an entire meal for their family.
This is a great chance for students to learn basic food handling, kitchen safety, and food preparation, all while feeling a “sense of accomplishment,” self-confidence, and feeling of contributing to their families well-being. Apart from learning about food and how to cook, students will learn lifetime skills by practicing basic math skills such as counting, weighing, measuring, tracking time, and they also gain social skills by working together and communicating in the kitchen.
