At The Springfield Anglican College, we focus on the development of all aspects of your child’s growth.
Through the adoption of a holistic approach to education, we aim to provide all students with a wealth of opportunities for all students to hone their talents and passions in areas such as the Creative Arts, Sport and through service.
Research strongly supports students being active participants in extracurricular programs and through their involvement, having great opportunities to develop a range of important attributes, many of which link back positively to academic achievement. Teamwork, self-discipline, organisational skills and the development of emotional intelligence and resilience form some of the clear benefits of such involvement.

Creative Arts is a vibrant and active department within the College and the wider community. Creative Arts incorporates the disciplines of Music, Drama, Dance, Visual Arts and Media Arts. All staff within these subject areas are highly-qualified and experienced educators who regularly participate in professional development within their respective fields.
There are many opportunities for Senior School students to be involved in graded string ensembles, guitar ensembles, concert bands, choirs, drama troupes, theatre sports teams, dance troupes and art clubs. Group lessons for instruments in our extra-curricular groups are currently included as part of the tuition fee. Additionally, private individual tuition is available on a user pays basis for guitar, singing, piano and a wide variety of wind, percussion and string instruments.
The College has an extensive concert program in which all our ensembles are showcased. College ensembles are featured in eisteddfods across the region and in community events. The Creative Arts Faculty produces a biannual, major musical production, with students from Year 4 and above able to audition for parts in the production or be part of the stage crew.
We value the Creative Arts highly at out College. Every day we see firsthand that involvement in the Creative Arts helps students to improve their critical thinking skills, and develop personal attributes including commitment, self-discipline, teamwork and confidence.

Clubs and Activities
Students are encouraged to participate in clubs, extension and support programs, as well as academic competitions. These provide opportunities for enhancing knowledge, skills, friendships and confidence.
Students are usually invited to nominate for activities such as Debating, public speaking and writing events, da Vinci Decathlon and other intellectually stimulating pursuits. Participation with like-minded friends, as well as the opportunity to forge new relationships, are a key part of these extra-curricular activities. Equally, developing skills and an appreciation of making a commitment to a group and learning are important aspects of being a member of our community.
