In addition to a variety of educational excursions and incursions, our Primary students may be involved in a wide range of extra-curricular activities which complement their overall RJ learning experience. Activities vary from time to time based on student interest and staff expertise, and may include:

  • Music Performance Groups - Singing groups and choirs, dance groups and instrumental groups. From Year 3, students may participate in Ukulele Ensembles, Guitar Ensembles, Beginner and Intermediate Bands, and group tutorials in woodwind, brass and percussion. Private tuition is also available through Peripatetic Tutors in a variety of woodwind and brass instruments, as well as keyboard, guitar, drums, violin and singing.

  • Sport - Sport and Fitness in K-2 develops students’ gross motor and ball skills in a range of sports. Students in Years 3-6 may compete in interschool sport competitions and a variety of gala days. A wide range of sporting opportunities are also available through to State and National levels through the Christian Schools Sports Association.
  • Special Events - Students greatly enjoy Primary special events such as Bandage Bear Day, Grandparents' Day, Family Service, Primary Disco, Year 6 Fun Day, Public Speaking Finals, Primary Open Day and Primary Presentation Night. The Primary "MAD" event is held in alternate years to the Secondary Musical.
  • Educational Trips - Year 4 students enjoy "Pyjamarama" which is a fun night at School. Year 5 students attend a two day trip to the Blue Mountains and Year 6 students enjoy a three day outdoor recreation camp.
  • Lunch-time Groups - Students may participate in a variety of lunchtime groups such as Christian kids clubs, chess and gardening.
  • Child Sponsorship - Each Primary grade sponsors a Nepalese child at the New Creation Children's Home in Kathmandu, Nepal. This program helps our students learn how important it is to care for other people. The students from RJ and Nepal particularly enjoy writing and receiving letters from one another.
  • External Opportunities - Students in performance or special groups may participate in a range of external opportunities such as choral festivals, interschool chess and debating competitions, as well as local community events.
