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.
Instrumental and Vocal Tuition on offer at the College includes the following:Flute/Piccolo, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Saxophone, Trumpet, Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba, Violin, Viola, Violoncello, Double Bass, Guitar, Drum Kit, Piano, Keyboard, Tuned & Non-tuned percussion, Vocal & Theory. Lessons with the specialist tutors are conducted at the College in purpose-built studios during normal class hours. Tuition fees apply.
Co-curricular sport opportunities are available to students of the Middle School after school hours during the week. The Athletics Club is a free activity which provides athletics training on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings for students who want to strengthen their physical fitness.
Redlands College Middle School also offers opportunities for students to participate in a variety of activities during a school week, such as RIZN, Readers Cup, Student Prayer/Bible Study Groups, Robotics, Drama, Debating, Maths Enrichment.
