Culture and Clubs
Educating the whole learner – body, mind and spirit.
Stanford Lake College students have the opportunity to represent the school in a number of cultural activities annually including a Cultural Extravaganza, two eisteddfods, debating competitions as well as participating in external music and drama examinations. One of the most loved events on the school’s annual calendar is the house singing competition, where each boarding house melodies it out to be crowned the champions. On a biannual basis, the school puts together a Talent Showcase as well as a musical or school play.
There is also a weekly culture period where all students choose an activity of their choice each term. The culture options for clubs and societies which include drama, music, percussion, and choir prove to be very popular among the pupils.
In addition, an external dance coach visits the school once a week to give lessons in Modern Dance and once per week for Ballet.

The art department is full of life as both the junior and senior classrooms are simultaneously creating magic. It is an open space for seniors to work on their Pat’s in a relaxed environment, and the juniors come to create something special. Having all age groups close by helps the seniors to give help and advice to the juniors. It also is a time where all the artists can gain inspiration from what the others are doing. Art club is a space to be creative and work on each one’s individual passions.
