Rundle Academy prides itself on providing students with a wide range of extracurricular activities that allow students to display their gifts in a variety of forms. To this end, our Fine Arts program has become an integral, and very popular, part of the programming offered at Rundle Academy.
Students in all grades have the option of pursuing Art or Drama as options. Both programs are based on the Alberta Education program of studies. In addition to these optional classes, Rundle Academy has numerous opportunities for students to display their artistic talents in our annual Christmas Concerts, Talent Shows, and other drama productions and art exhibits. Singing, dancing, acting, sketching, sculpting can all be a part of the experience of the students at Rundle Academy.
Rundle Academy is also host to a popular Music Club, which has students in grades 7-12 playing an eclectic blend of musical instruments and styles during lunch hours and after school.
Rundle Academy has a strong music program with many performance opportunities. The elementary program uses many elements of the Orff and Kodaly methodologies. Through singing, playing instruments, choreography and music games, elementary students learn about teamwork while creating beautiful sounds and harmonious movements. Junior and senior high students may choose to take music as an option class. Students learn about basic music rudiments, singing or playing in an ensemble, composing, and how to record in GarageBand. Instruments used in the classes include guitars, ukuleles, the piano, African drums and various percussion instruments. Highlights of the year are the Christmas Concert and Spring Showcase.
