Beyond The Classroom

Beyond The Classroom2017-02-20T23:56:08+10:30

The learning opportunities for students at Redeemer go well beyond the constraints of times in class. Children can choose to participate in a variety of extra educational experiences during lunch times and after school in different areas of interest.

Our weekly Lunch Clubs include Choir, Japanese Club, SET Club, PE Club and Computer Club.

These groups give students the opportunity to continue exploring learning areas they have a passion for in informal and hands-on ways in their own time.

Our Games Room is open two lunchtimes each week and is run by our Wellbeing Coordinator. The Games Room provides students from Reception to Year 7 with an opportunity to develop their social skills through structured and supported play experiences.

For those students seeking an additional challenge, our weekly Chess Club is the perfect opportunity for them. Once a week, this club meets after school with a professional Chess Coach to help our students develop their understanding of this strategic game and their own problem-solving and analytical skills.
