“Battle of the Clubs is an event that makes all the clubs work together and become more active. It will help us see which clubs are organizedwork well together,” says Mr. Ballado. “The purpose of this event is to not only bring unity to the clubs but also the whole school.”

According to coordinator Kasim Shaikh, judges will be selected from outside Irvington.

“It’s just a fun, unifying event,” says Kasim. “It’s a way for the clubs to show off their talents.”
