ACTIVITIES FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
Aldridge Study Centre offers a range of activities aimed at high school students. Please contact us if you would like more information about the activities we organise for high school students.
THE ALDRIDGE CLUB
The Aldridge Club caters for boys in Years 7, 8 and 9 and operates on Saturday afternoons during the school term.
We usually start with a study session in our study room followed by a short talk on an aspect of character, faith or professional development.
The boys also take part in some kind of activity which fosters the intellectual, cultural and all-round personal development of those that take part. Through the activities, the students develop their skills, widen their interests and make new friends in an atmosphere which encourages generosity, a spirit of service and consideration for others.
SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
For students in Years 10, 11 and 12 we have activities on Saturday evening. Our chaplain preaches in the chapel for a period of guided prayer, followed by Benediction. Then we have a dinner followed by an activity.
Senior high school students are also invited to come to Aldridge for supervised study sessions and talks on aspects of the Catholic faith.
Aldridge organises camps for high school students during the school holidays.
In the past we have done all sorts of things, like the visit the Granite Belt, trekked in Lamington National Park and kayaked at Caloundra.
THE BIG PICTURE PROGRAM
The Big Picture Program aims to introduce students in Years 10 and 11 to university life and the world of professional work. It endeavours to guide them towards building successful careers and, moreover, fulfilling lives. Beyond equipping students to make wise career decisions, the program aims to cultivate in young men an awareness of the bigger picture, extending to an understanding and sense of responsibility for society and their relationships with family and friends.
