Clubs and societies

Choir

Over the past 10 years our showcase choir has continually been growing in confidence and enrolments.  From our Year 7’s to Year 12’s, the showcase choir is a relaxed club that meets once a week as a full ensemble with a chance to enjoy modern vocal repertoire. The students select their songs based around yearly productions and look to cover as many classics and popular songs as possible. The small group eventually turns into a real close family that not only enjoys each other’s company but also experiences the chance to sing as a group/duet/trio or solo. They currently learn under the guidance of Mrs Little and Mr Hodgo, and both teachers are again excited about the upcoming 2019 Aldridge Night Out production.
 
 
Cattle Club
"Cattle Club" takes place at the Aldridge Ag Farm every Friday at Recess 1.  Students have the opportunity to participate in the lunchtime curriculum activity with Mr Kraut who will teach them about cattle behaviour as well as correct handling and show preparation techniques. Students even get to put their new skills to test with our very own show cattle - "Pluto, Pumba, Lexi and Lady".

Kieron Hyndman (AFL Development Coordinator – Fraser Coast) and a Maryborough Bears Senior player will be at Aldridge SHS every Monday at Recess 1 to teach AFL skills to interested students. This includes kicking, handballing, marking and tackling. Boys and girls from all year levels are encouraged to join in and have a go! For more information please see Mr Clark in C Block.

This club, which meets in P3 Recess 2 of every Monday, will be project based, allowing students to collaborate on a range of artistic forms to produce an outcome that can be shared with the school and wider community. It will also allow a space for students to work on their own projects.
The current planned projects the Arts Club will participate in are:
* Focus on Ability Film Festival – May 31st
* Fraser Coast Art Exhibition – 23/24th May
* Aldridge Night Out Pop Art Display – Mid August

Eco Committee Club
The focus of the Aldridge Eco Committee Club is to develop, implement and monitor the school's Eco-Action Plan that addresses the environmental concerns of the school community. A major project the students are working on is to implement recycling bins around the school grounds. The students will be responsible for creating the ideas surrounding marketing and advertising of the bins purpose and where to position these bins in the school grounds to make it easy to monitor their use and collect their refuse. They will also be in charge of educating the entire school of the importance of their function in reducing off site impacts such as pollution and contribution to unsustainable landfill in our local area.
The club meets every Thursday in Recess 1. If students are interested in becoming a member of the Eco Committee Club they are encouraged to speak to Mr Yates or Ms Graham.
 
Drama Club
Drama club is a space where we explore a variety of theatre genres and styles. During our sessions we learn new techniques and rehearse skills in making dramatic meaning. Through working together members of our troupe build valuable life skills such as confidence, focus, teamwork, creativity and empathy through experiencing different characters and situations. Drama club is a supportive environment that is full of energy and entertainment, and we’re looking forward to expanding our presence at Aldridge this year. If you have a passion in any of these areas please come and check out our Drama club period 3/Recess 1 on Tuesdays or Friday 3:05pm-4:15pm.
 
Write-aholics Creative Writing Club
Our Write-aholics club is always looking for new members, so if you have an interest in creative writing and want to meet with like-minded students and make new friends, then come along at recess 1 on Mondays in H3. Our intention is provide an opportunity for aspiring writers to work independently or collaborate with others to refine their writing skills. All you need is a pen, paper and fertile imagination.
