Extra-Curricular

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

Creative Arts is a vibrant and active department within the College and the wider community. Creative Arts incorporates the disciplines of Music, Drama, Dance and Visual Arts. All staff within these subject areas are highly-qualified and experienced educators who regularly participate in professional development within their respective fields.

Involvement in the Creative Arts helps students to develop critical thinking and develop personal attributes including commitment, self-discipline, teamwork and confidence. The College offers many opportunities for students of all ages to be involved in the Creative Arts. Students can participate in a variety of bands, choirs, string ensembles and dance troupes. Group lessons for instruments in our extra-curricular groups are provided as part of the tuition fee. Private individual tuition is also available on a user pays basis for guitar, singing, piano and a wide variety of wind, percussion and string instruments.

Sports

The College provides sporting opportunities for all students in Senior School. The College is a member of the Greater Brisbane Conference and competes throughout the year against independent schools in a range of sports and carnivals.

The College fosters a philosophy of participation for all, and values the importance of physical activity in a young person’s life. Our extra-curricular activities are designed to offer opportunities for skill development, good sportsmanship and team spirit. All students are encouraged to participate in the wide variety of activities offered, which provide options for the casual sportsperson who just wants to take part for fun, and those elite athletes who aspire to excellence or careers in sport.

Students have the opportunity of playing Saturday sport against other GBC Schools that encourages a healthy inter-school competition using a home and away fixture system, with a GBC Grand Final being played at the end of the term in each of the respective sports.

Advanced teams also have the opportunity to compete in elite external competitions such as the All Schools Touch Championships, Queensland Schools Volleyball Championships, Uhlsport Cup (Soccer) and the Brisbane Christian Schools (BCS) Sports Association in a variety of sports. Fixtures are played after school during the week. Talented athletes also have the opportunity to advance through the Representative Met West School Sport Program.

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.
