High School Clubs & Societies
Instrumental Ensemble (Grade 7-12)
This club is by invitation only, and enables pupils to showcase their talents at school functions, music concerts and assemblies.
Rock Band (Grade 7-12)
Drum Kit, Electric/Base Guitar or Keyboard players who have a Grade 3 playing level, are able to showcase their talents at school functions, music concerts and assemblies.
Marimbas (Grade 7-11)
Our focus is to introduce our pupils to the African marimba and its repertoire. Marimbas are a perfect fit for bringing hands-on accessible music to people from all walks of life. It is a great teaching instrument because the sounds are easy to produce and there are many amazing life lessons that naturally arise when learning the different parts. Besides the obvious rhythm, melody, and harmony, our players learn other concepts such as balance, pattern recognition, improvisation, patience, and that the final product is bigger than each individual part.
The vocal ensemble will focus on part singing, and anyone from Grade 7-11 may join. Songs will range from light classical to musicals to contemporary pop. No experience is needed, but an audition will take place. Pupils will be able to showcase their talents at school functions, music concerts and assemblies.
The tech team assists with sound, lighting and AV for assemblies, productions, functions, and concerts.
The Sophists (Debating)
The Debating team participates in the Rotary Inter-schools' debating competition (late-February- end of July), with the finals taking place in the 3rd term.
Interact is an international organisation, supported by Rotary International, which seeks to promote meaningful community service activities for young people. Cannons Creek with its motto C3 (Cannons Creek Cares) has a history of outstanding community service. The role of the Interact Club is to monitor and motivate community service happening at Cannons Creek, assist pupils in finding an outlet to do meaningful community service, and volunteer time to do fundraising for Interact.
Muslim Student Association
The Muslim Student Association is an association run by pupils that hosts discussions and events spreading the faith of Islam and sharing thoughts on Islamic matters. The participation of faith communities in interfaith dialogue and activity plays a critical role in building and sustaining this association.
Canoeing is a non-competitive sport for girls and boys Grades 7 – 11 that takes
place on Thursday afternoon during the first, second and third terms. Pupils are transported in the school bus to Century City Canoe Club where they have access to a variety of canoes, paddles, lifejackets, and changing rooms with hot showers.
In 2023 we moved from Milnerton Canoe Club to Century City Canoe Club where we have access to some 12 km of canals in and around Intaka Island and the Canal Walk shopping and business precincts for paddling. We have great fun exploring these canals and building up our paddling skills in the process.
Objectives of Canoeing:
Develop paddling fitness.
Develop and efficient paddling style.
Develop the different paddle strokes.
Develop self-rescue techniques in the event of a capsize.
Have fun in a safe environment.
The Cannons Creek photographic society is one of the most active in the school. It has many enthusiastic members from all grades. A competition is held in the first, second and third term each year and is based on a theme. Prizes are awarded for the winning entries. All entries go on display at the end of each term.
Go.COM (Christian Union)
Christian Union is the spiritual heart of the school. We enjoy having discussions, watching DVDs and encouraging each other in our relationship with God.
The idea of the Outdoor Club is to offer at least one multi-day trail per year (over and above Adventure Week) plus various other one day activities. Examples of possible activities include hiking and camping. Multi-day trails are booked a year in advance and take place during school holidays.
Pupils who are Book Club members pay a nominal bi-monthly fee and the teacher-in-charge purchases books according to pupils' requests. Informal discussion of the books and the submission of short book reviews are encouraged.
Back to the Future (History Society)
The History Society is for those fascinated by the past. We enjoy interactive workshops, outings and guest speakers at least once per term (more often if the opportunities arise).
This is a social club of like-minded individuals. Bats and balls are provided.
