Cultural Activities

In keeping with our philosophy of developing well-rounded individuals, Rand Park High School has a long and proud tradition of learner participation in an exciting range of cultural activities, clubs and societies.

Performing Arts is a real strength of the school and provides aspiring actors, dancers, musicians and singers with many opportunities for public performance.  Learners are able to develop skills in all aspects of stagecraft including performance and production.

Shalati Khosa danced away with three medals at the World Lyrical Dance Federation’s world championships and Megan Young was crowned the U14 Irish Dancing champion at the SA Champs and has qualified for the 2024 World Irish Dancing Championships to be held in Glasgow. 

Ayanda Masango was selected as one of four anchor presenters on SABC 2’s Kids News Room – a news and entertainment programme.

Many of our learners elect to participate in Public Speaking and Debating, developing their communication skills and enhancing their self-confidence in competition with some of Johannesburg’s top private schools.

Annual major productions, inter-house play festivals, dance festivals, Rand Park’s Got Talent and participation in the Festival of Excellence in the Dramatic Arts (FEDA) are regulars on the school’s cultural calendar.

2023 was an exciting year for the Music Group!  Our school band – Philophobia – was victorious at the 2023 Battle of the Bands Competition held at St Mary’s.

Learners may also explore their interests and talents in a number of clubs and societies, including the Photographic Club, the Hiking Club, Community Outreach, Christians in Action, Cheerleaders, the Emergency Care Team and Scitech.

Strategic partnerships with organisations like the Academy of Sound Engineering help to advance  learners’ knowledge and skills in sound and lighting as well as film-making and film-acting.
