I don't know if every student is expected to participate in as many extracurriculars as possible or if the kids have that much fun together that they want to do as many as they can. For example, is there another school out there where the football players are also in the choir? And choir members are on the football team? The school has all of the standard high school sports teams. It also boasts multiple choirs. Many drama, theatre and one musical production each year.

An absolutely outstanding aspect of RJC is the time and energy dedicated to extracurricular activities and the way in which everyone is involved. For such a small school, they pack an enormous punch in all the sporting activities they’re involved in. RJC, of course, is renowned for their choirs and drama productions. The intimate nature of the school atmosphere and the pride fostered in the students, make it a remarkable experience to see the dogged determination with which the students participate in all events. We were always amazed at the way in which the staff arrange activities for the students after hours, making sure there’s fun on the menu.

Rosthern Junior College offers a wide variety of activities and students are actively encouraged to participate. The vocal music program offers Concert Choir, a women's only choir, a men's only choir and an auditioned traveling choir. RJC has a tradition of performing a musical in the spring where anyone who is interested in participating is welcome. There are private voice and piano teachers available to students. Athletic offerings include: soccer, cross country, football, basketball, volleyball teams. Our kids participated in the the choirs, spring musical, soccer and cross-country. Students that want to participate in arts and athletics are encouraged to do so, and the schedule is setup to allow them to pursue their interests.

As a small school, one might wonder if there is enough for students to do. There's more than enough --- boys and girls competitive volleyball, football, soccer, community hockey, basketball, curling, track & field, badminton. Phys Ed classes teach athletic skills and teamwork too. Everyone participates and learns! Then there's a concert choir, chorale, dinner theater, musical, voice, piano and guitar lessons offered. Athletically, I think the emphasis is on skill development and team play more than being provincial champions. That said, they have fielded competitive teams from small numbers and choirs. Coaches/teachers are knowledgeable in their area of expertise.
