As the 2016-17 school year begins, students are eager to return to their usual sports, clubs, and activities. In Ocean City High School’s effort to make sure every student is given the chance to explore their opportunities and find the perfect after school activity, they host the annual OCHS Club Carnival sponsored by Student Council.

This year, the Club Carnival will be held on Thursday, September 22nd in the school’s cafeteria, beginning at 2:45PM and ending at 3:30PM. The Club Carnival is an OCHS September tradition that goes back several decades, typically showcasing over 30 student clubs and activities.

The idea is to have students walk around and visit numerous booths, helping them find something that sparks their interest. This event offers higher recognition for the school’s clubs and activities, like there currently is for athletics. According to Matt Purdue, the Student Council Adviser, over 400 students are expected to be in attendance.

“The Club Carnival provides students with a unique opportunity to see all of the high school’s clubs and organizations in a friendly and exciting atmosphere.” Brad Altman, Student Council Officer

The event is open to all students and attendance is strongly encouraged. Late buses will be available for students as well.
