Oakland High School Cantonese Club was discussing plans to spread the Chinese culture in school at the foreign language teacher class and club advisor Leon Chen’s classroom last Wednesday, April, 6, 2016.
According to Chen, this meeting was about an hour long with the officers and adviser of the club discussing their plans for their club members. The officers were all trying to share out their ideas and thoughts to help plan out a last event for the members.
“I liked how we gather together to talk and trying to express our ideas even though we don’t have anything but we’re trying at least,” said sophomore Ivy Wong.
According to studies of school clubs, they are composed of students with adults as advising figures to maintain the functionality of clubs. Clubs primarily focus on four aspects: fundraising, community service career interest, and interpersonal dynamics.
The meeting consisted of officers gathering and sharing ideas and exchanging thoughts about creating events for members.
“Sometimes the club meeting is too talkative but that is good, because that is how meetings are suppose to be like, not just dead air,” said sophomore Raymond Zhu.
In addition to the evaluation of the meeting the advisor had also said something about the club as well.
“What I would think is that the club has it’s ups and downs in the past but we do our very best to raise the club to the top and trying to make it better than before,” said the club advisor, Mr. Chen.
