Get involved: learn beyond the classroom
Students are encouraged to take their education further by getting involved.
Redeemer’s clubs and extracurricular programs connect students to others who share their interests, whether their passion is sports, theatre, music, or just playing games with friends. There are opportunities to develop leadership skills and serve others.
Redeemer’s programs help students grow their skills and their faith while building friendships that last a lifetime.
There are a lot of great ways to get involved at Redeemer Christian High School.
Clubs and extracurricular activites
Joining a club in high school can help you make new friends, boost your extracurricular activity record and give college/university applications some help. The classroom isn’t the only learning environment in a school, the skills you learn in clubs are essential skills that can apply to everyday life. Things such as meeting and speaking to new people, keeping an eye on time, and being organized are things you will use every single day of our lives.

Knitting is just one of the activities students in the new Service Club might be doing to serve people in our community. Last year, students donated their knit items–mittens, hats, scarves and socks–to the patrons of Ottawa Innercity Ministries.
Royals Day is the first competitive sport ‘home’ game of the season. Students are encouraged to wear their school colours: blue, gold and white. The wackier the outfit the better to cheer on our team. Participating in Royals Day and other spirit days where the uniform is substituted for a given theme is a great way to have some fun at school.
