In addition to a variety of educational excursions and incursions, our students may choose to be involved in a wide range of extra-curricular activities which will complement their overall RJ learning experience. Students may be involved in the activities listed below:

  • Music Performance Groups - Singing groups and choirs, dance groups and instrumental groups
  • Sport - Sport and Fitness in K-2 develops students’ gross motor and ball skills in a range of sports [mini-athletics link]. Students in Years 3-6 may compete in inter-school sport competitions and a variety of gala days. A range of sporting opportunities will also become available through to State and National levels through the Christian Schools Sports Association.
  • Leadership - Year 6 students may be selected as Primary Captains or Vice-Captains each year. House Captains and House Leaders may be nominated for each School House. Student Leaders from Years 4–6 will represent their class in the Student Forum.
  • Special Events - Students will greatly enjoy special events such as:
    • Bandaged Bear Day
    • Book Week
    • Education Morning

  • Child Sponsorship and Service - Each class sponsors a 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. Our Student Forum organise a number of fundraising events throughout the year to raise money for people in need.  
  • External Opportunities- Students in performance or special groups may participate in external opportunities such as choral festivals, inter-school chess and debating competitions, as well as local community events e.g. Riverstone Festival.
