The following clubs and activities are available to Bishop Alexander Carter students:
In the spring of 2012, Bishop Carter launched an exciting new club, Remote Control (R/C) car racing. This was the first club of its kind in the North, if not all of Ontario.
Lego and Robotics Club
The purpose of the robotics club is for students to learn how to code and write commands for robots through play. By programming and controlling robots, students will step into the world of science, acquiring knowledge and skills that will be useful and applicable beyond the classroom.
At Bishop Alexander Carter we have a very active and involved Student Council. Members of the Student Council represent all grade levels and assist in school related functions such as school wide assemblies, liturgies and special event days.
To develop cognitive skills such as attention, memory, decision-making and creativity of students. To teach basic understanding of the rules of chess, for beginning players, as well as critical analysis of the tactics of the game for more advanced players.
Video Game Competition
Since 2006, Mr. Facchini has hosted a video game competition each year at BAC. It started off focusing on the Halo series, but has now evolved to include a variety of other games, especially Mario Kart and Smash Bros. Some participants come to compete, others come to game casually with friends, but everyone has fun, and everyone looks forward to enjoying the large amounts of pizza and chips. The competition normally lasts from 4:30pm until midnight, and a prize is awarded to the winners of each of the tournaments.
The vocal group is open to all students who enjoy singing. The vocal group performs at various school functions and events. Students have the opportunity to hone and practise their talent during lunch and after school hours. Students also perform during school concerts and also at other events within the community.
Students who are unable to timetable the drama production course into their timetable may choose to audition for a small part in the play. Students meet after school hours to rehearse and perform. Students in Grades 9-12 may also choose to be a part of the Improv team and perform at the city Improv competition.
Students for Diversity
Students for Diversity helps to promote equality and respect for all students in the school, regardless of gender, age, language, dis/ability, colour, ethnicity, and/or sexual orientation. We try to provide opportunities for everyone to have a voice and to participate, following the teachings of Jesus’ “preferential option for the poor”.

Parents and guardians can help too, by joining us on those days (watch the calendar for details), or if you already give blood, consider donating as part of the BACCSS “Partners for Life” program.
