The College's extra-curricular provision is excellent. Dedicated and enthusiastic staff provide a wide range of activities to meet the interests of the pupils. ISI Report, January 2015
St Columba’s College encourages all its students to become involved in the extra-curricular programme. As well as seeking to excel in these areas, the College aims to provide opportunities for all students to extend their learning. Clubs focus on sporting, cultural, academic and pastoral aspects and encourage the boys to develop their abilities, experience and understanding in all of these fields.
St Columba’s has implemented the new S.H.A.P.E. timetable, which informs students of all student activities taking place in school, on a weekly basis.
The SHAPE timetable includes:
Service activities, such as Student Ministry and Recycling groups
House activities, such as the forthcoming Eisteddfod practices
Academic clubs, such as regular catch-up sessions and specialist exam group workshops
Practical activities, such as Sport and Music practice
Extra-curricular, which includes all the clubs in the school. For example Bike Mechanics club, and Chess Club.
We intend to update the SHAPE timetable every Friday and it will be available on all student and parent FROG homepages. On the parent FROG homepage, the timetable can be accessed by clicking on the ‘Clubs/Activities’ tab. By including all activities in one place, parents can see the variety of activities available to their sons, many of which, offer the opportunity to develop new skills, be creative, and demonstrate new ways of thinking.
Students involvement in the SHAPE programme is tracked, as part of their progress through the school. I hope that parents will encourage their sons to participate in many of the activities available.
Below is a flavour of the opportunities that are available to our students and the weekly SHAPE timetable
