I take part of the drama club, the dance club and used to be in the field hockey team, but now I am in the volleyball team. I really love the after school clubs because they are really well taught by passionate teachers. The school tries their best to cover most of the basic arts like music, theatre, visual arts, film making, etc... I really enjoy the clubs I am so excited to be a part of them this year and to be in the school's production of Bugsy Malone ; ) If you are interested in any other form of art or if you feel like there should be another club or sport, you can always bring this to the teachers in charge of the curriculum. One of my favorite things at Rosseau Lake College is that if you don't like something that the school is offering or if you feel there should be more you can change it, and the teachers are always so open into ways of making the school better. I gave the example of how they separate juniors and seniors so you can see what my problem is, and you can realize that I can talk to the teachers about this, ask them my questions, sort it out and maybe I can change it.

RLC participates in various extracurricular clubs and athletic teams. One thing I really think the school needs to address is the length of our sports teams practice time. During the winter term I feel our athletic teams do not have enough sports time to practice. You will see that during the spring and fall terms our athletic teams succeed more frequently than our winter term athletics. This is because our teams in fall and spring have one hour of practice time every day 4 days a week and 1h 30m of practice on Fridays. In the winter term we have 45 minute practices on Tuesday and Wednesdays and 1h30m on Fridays. You see the issue here... In terms of is there enough variety of so that students are able to do the things they want to there is definitely enough variety in my opinion.

Having the ability to canoe/sail/ cross country ski etc is quite great. We had a mandatory sports program during my attendance at Rosseau Lake College, that required the students to join one sport per term. There was a "generalized" Fall/Winter/Spring "Outdoor Program" that usually incorporated a variety of activities for those students that did not want to play a team sport. Team sports in the 90's were Field Hockey, Volleyball and Soccer for the girls, and Soccer, Rugby, Basketball and Hockey for the boys (though we had a few girls play for the boys team). Mandatory activities was actually quite beneficial, both from a socialization standpoint, as well as promoting activity and "healthy living". Our sports teams were quite competitive, despite being quite small, and usually competed in both the jurisdictional area (Muskoka/Parry Sound) in addition to the private school circuit. Students do absolutely receive well rounded experiences at RLC.
