Being active and engaged in the school community is an important part of all student's educational experience as it shows that they have a life “outside the books”. Dunecrest believes that more than just being fun, our ECA programs help the students forge friendships, learn how to work collaboratively, take on leadership roles & responsibilities, manage their time and engage in the larger world.
