Extra- Curricular Activities

Extra-Curricular Activities

From the sports field to the library to the classroom, Spine Road high aims to offer students from all walks of life something to express themselves in. While not required, every student is highly encouraged to join an academic club or sports team of some sort to help offset the heavy nature that academics can sometimes have. 

School, to us at Spine Road, is more than just a place of learning; it’s a place of growth and experience. With this in mind, should any student have an idea they wish to present as an additional extra-curricular or mural club, they are more than welcome to bring it up with one of our staff to have it reviewed and potentially green-lit. Below, we’ll cover many of our extra-mural and curricular actvities so any student or potential student can have some idea of what they’d like to do.

Academic and Social Clubs

CHESS

The ancient game of strategy and forethought. Offered to all grades, immerse yourself in a struggle of wit and intelligence against opponents of all skill levels. Learn the rules, techniques and, most importantly, have fun.

DEBATING SOCIETY

More than a simple argument, debates offer those with both conflicting and agreeing viewpoints a chance to challenge and grow them further and learn something new. It’s not about winning here, only growing and learning new things!

BOOK CLUB

Not everyone is made for long-winded meetings or peopling, preferring to get lost in a world of words instead. A well written book can take you to places beyond your wildest imagination, so if you love reading and you love books, this is for you!

FIRST AID

Learn to heal and care for those injured, to respond in cause of an emergency, and the proper procedure to follow. With plenty of practice almost guaranteed, thank you Rugby, learn an integral skill that could, perhaps, save a life in the future.

MAGAZINE CLUB

Have a flair for writing? Love engaging people with creative content or have a gift for design. Spine Road High’s Magazine Club would love to have you on board, all they ask is for you to be committed and hardworking!

INTERFAITH

Learn the path others have walked and of the cultures that surround you. To truly understand someone, after all, one must understand and know the path that has led them forward. If you love people and culture, Interfaith is the place for you.

Sports

RUGBY

Strength, speed and endurance. Think you have what it takes? Test your metal in South Africa’s favorite past-time sport on Spine Road’s team. Push past your limits and reach new heights as a team, as individuals and as family.

SOCCER

The world’s most popular sport. From the streets of Brazil to the high-risers of the Middle-East, soccer connects people from all around the world. Test your skills against others your own age and beyond with our school’s very own team!

TABLE TENNIS

Reflexes, precision and a whole lot of practice. It takes time to become great at something, and table tennis is no exception. Daunting at first, learn the subtle art of the game through training and see not all about this game meets the eye.

CRICKET

Patience and technique reign king in this game of champions. Learn from long-time fans and coaches of the game, with emphasis placed on the subtle things often overlooked by the casual viewer. New or experienced, all are welcome here!

VOLLEY BALL

Aim for the moon, shoot for the stars! An exciting game in constant movements, demanding your absolute limits and beyond. Master your body and its reactions and surpass all limits you never knew you had.

GYMNASTICS

It’s more than just spectacular jumps and superb landings. Gymnastics demands that you learn every aspect of your body and master it, accept it and grow it further. Failure is common, but success is grown from it all the same.
