Middle Years & High School Cocurricular - Years 7-9
Radford offers a diverse cocurricular program, with the emphasis on participation, skill development, teamwork and enjoyment. Cocurricular activities are conducted outside school hours and student participation is on a voluntary basis. Students have the opportunity to achieve many positive experiences through cocurricular endeavour, as well as the improvement of relations between themselves, staff and the wider community. Their experiences inevitably foster attitudes and values that students take with them into adult life.
