Amis de Rachel:
Les Amis de Rachel is a committee inspired by Rachel Scott, the first victim of the shooting at Columbine High School in 1999. Rachel's goal was to change the world, one simple act of kindness at a time. She strived to create a positive chain reaction of kindness and strived to include and celebrate everyone. Our committee began to organize simple projects in 2010 and continues to share the spirit of Rachel in monthly school activities, which include: volunteering at the Hand-in-Hand for Haiti run, Valentine's Day cards, an Easter egg hunt, draws for prizes, a toy mountain and hockey game at Christmas time, free hot chocolate days, Kendra's Walk for cancer in the spring, preparing dainties for police officers and firefighters in the community, to name a few. Come and join us and help us to keep Rachel's spirit alive in the halls of CJS!

Gender-Sexuality Alliance (GSA):
Our Gender-Sexuality Alliance (GSA) works to promote a safer and more accepting environment for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities – as well as those who might be seeking information or questioning – through education, peer support, social action, and advocacy. We believe that all students deserve to feel safe and supported in their education without fear of harassment or violence.
The Gender-Sexuality Alliance looks for many ways to be active in our school community through such events as promoting activism and mental well-being, spreading awareness of LGBTQ+ issues, attending student conferences, hearing from guest speakers, or just having fun at our regular game nights. Our own GSA Library allows any students to gently borrow from our special collection of queer-themed books and DVDs anonymously at no cost. Join our weekly meetings to make new friends, support each other, learn, and have fun.
Indigenous Youth Leadership:
IYL (Indigenous Youth Leadership) is a group of Indigenous students from all of the LRSD high schools. They meet once a month with divisional leaders, teachers and elders. The goal of these meetings is to share and learn more about Indigenous traditions, ceremonies, and the realities of Indigenous people in the division, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and the world. These students return to their high schools to develop projects, with the goal of promoting Indigenous perspectives within their school communities. In the past, students have participated in organizing an Indigenous feast at the board office, as well as a community viewing of a documentary about water injustice for Indigenous communities in the province.
