Redlands College provides students with the opportunity to choose from, and participate in an extensive range of co-curricular programs on offer in Middle School.
We recommend parents encourage and support their child’s participation in co-curricular activities. Students who are involved in co-curricular activities seek to learn and acquire new skills and values, tend to develop a positive outlook and social balance and achieve well academically.
Some of the major areas of co-curricular activity available in Middle School are performance music, sport, musicals or plays and The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
Students may choose from the extensive range of Performance Music Ensembles on offer in Middle School, which includes Choirs, String, Guitar and Percussion Ensembles, and Bands. Students who are particularly advanced on their instrument, or whose voice has changed considerably, may have the opportunity to apply for acceleration into one or more of the Senior School Ensembles.

Lessons with specialist tutors are conducted at the College in purpose-built studios during normal class hours. Tuition fees apply.
Sport plays a significant role in the holistic formation of students at Redlands College. Through participation in the competitive and recreational sports offered, students will advance their sport-specific skills, enhance their individual fitness, improve their personal wellbeing and develop an increased sense of belonging. Active engagement with teachers, specialist coaches and peers in class, at training and at competitions will also contribute to the development of transferable life skills such as goal setting, discipline, resilience, and how to cooperate as a team member. Sport at Redland’s College is about pursuing sporting success and individual excellence, equally.
