CREATIVE ART TUTORING PROGRAM
In addition to classroom experiences in Drama, Music and Visual Art, the College facilitates an extensive extra-curricular Creative Arts Tutoring Program. The program provides students with the opportunity to further explore and develop their creative interests and talents.
A range of group and individual lessons are available from Year 7 to 12 for dance, instrumental (piano, guitar, strings, wind, brass, percussion), voice and speech. These lessons are offered before, during and after school pending the availability of tutors.
MUSICAL PRODUCTIONS AND CALVARY SHOWCASE
Secondary students are given the opportunity to develop their creative flair through involvement in the delivery of a major stage production. The College alternates annually between a Musical or Showcase performance providing students with a range of outlets to further develop their skills in acting, singing, set and prop design, make-up, sound and lighting production, stage crew, and digital media.
The Chapel Band in the Secondary College offers another creative arts outlet for our students – combined with ministry. Students are invited to join our Chapel Band as part of the worship team or production. The Chapel Band rehearses after school one day each week and are integral in assisting our Chaplains with our fortnightly Chapel services. The Chapel Band may also have opportunity to perform throughout the year at some of the College’s big events such as ANZAC Day Assembly, Spring Fair and Awards Celebration.
Secondary College students have the opportunity to participate in Block Sport – inter-school sport as organised across Townsville. Students choosing to be involved will have a chance for practices during normal Sport/Co-Curricular lessons throughout the week, with all games taking place outside of school hours. Some of the sports that Calvary has been involved in include AFL, Basketball, Football, Netball, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Touch and Volleyball.
Mountain Biking is offered as an elective in the Secondary Sport/Co-Curricular Program. We have our own fleet of Merida Big 9 mountain bikes which cater to a wide range of interest and ability levels. Students are excited to be part of this program which connects them to the positive culture of Townsville mountain biking and its great natural resources. We create opportunities for our students to participate in interschool competitions for both adventure and mountain bike racing.
Scuba is another exciting extra-curricular opportunity on offer at Calvary for an additional cost. Scuba lessons are undertaken during the normal timetabled Sport/Co-Curricular lesson each week. The course involves three components – theory, pool and open water dives. Open water dives are usually completed at Magnetic Island on weekends throughout the year. Students will need to attend two of these open water dives in order to complete the course. The course offered is PADI accredited - meaning students will attain a qualification upon completion.
Voices is a wonderful creative arts extra-curricular opportunity available to all students in the Secondary College. It combines the very best of singing and dancing giving students the experience of being a part of a modern day choir. The group rehearses during lunch times and has the opportunity to perform at some of the College’s big events such as Showcase, Spring Fair and Awards Celebration.
