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.
Richard Kaldenberg, one of our Grade 12 learners, also had an overwhelmingly successful year on-stage when he signed up with the Barnyard to perform in their shows and won the competition to be the opening act at Huawei Joburg Day.
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.
2018 has been an exciting year for the Music Group! Our school band – Suspended – was acknowledged for its song-writing abilities when it received the ‘Most Original Song’ award at the 2018 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 and the Bright Light Film Academy help to advance learners’ knowledge and skills in sound and lighting as well as film-making and film-acting.
