Cocurricular in Senior School - Years 11-12
Radford offers a diverse cocurricular program, with the emphasis on participation, skill development, teamwork and enjoyment. Cocurricular activities are conducted outside school hours and participation by students is on a voluntary basis. Students have the opportunity to achieve many positive experiences through the cocurricular endeavour, as well as to improve relations between them and their staff and the wider community. Their experiences inevitably foster attitudes and values that students can keep with them into adult life.
