      Extra Lessons

      Extra Mural Activities

      At Orion we have a very active cultural group. We do art, drama, dance and singing.

      There is an opportunity for individual participation and group work in order to give even the quietest child an opportunity to showcase their talents.

      We take part in the annual RACA Eisteddfod in September. Over the past two years we have had exceptional results in all areas: singing, dancing, public speaking, prepared reading, art, baking and creative writing.

      We also have a yearly in-house “Orion’s got Talent” competition, which allows learners from all grades to get their act together and perform on stage. This event emulates the well-known global talent show, and the top two acts (one from the Primary School and one from the High School) receive prizes.

      At Orion, every learner has the potential to express their creativity in their own way and our cultural activities provide a myriad of opportunities for them to do so.

      High School Sport

      A good balance between sports and academics is encouraged at Orion College. Not only is it beneficial to the body, it also promotes a healthy mind, which is the key to achieving great results in the classroom.

      Here at Orion College we offer a wide range of sports with the aim of getting as many of our students actively involved in at least one sport or activity per term. Sports offered throughout the year are soccer, netball, rugby, chess, cricket, fitness, swimming, athletics, hockey and tennis.

      With our swimming pool area, newly built sports field and tennis court, we are aiming to grow our sporting exponentially by hosting matches for the respective sports. Matches are played against surrounding schools that have the same sporting disciplines as we do.

      Our aim is to focus on and maintain a high level of sportsmanship and etiquette, which is an extremely valuable life lesson to obtain while in school.

      We encourage participation from all learners across the board.

      I will leave you with this wise and meaningful quote:

      Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body; it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.

      John F. Kennedy
