Academic, Music, Netball, Soccer

Southern River College is highly regarded for its specialised Inspire Programs in the fields of Netball, Soccer, Music and Academic Excellence and your child is eligible to be a part of up to three of these programs.

Academic Excellence

The Southern River College Inspire Academic Excellence Program provides an enriched learning environment designed to extend and challenge each individual to achieve his or her full potential. It aims to challenge students with enhanced learning opportunities through extension and acceleration, encouraging high levels of thinking through a stimulating learning environment. Students are engaged in explicit and inquiry based learning in which they use innovative ideas and problem solving skills to reflect critically on their learning.


The Netball Inspire Program has been developed in conjunction with the Southern District Netball Association (separate fees apply) and is designed to add to the experience and skills that have been developed in the individual through their club participation and training. Students will follow individual programs and will be able to chart their improvement and progress as they go through the course.


The Inspire Soccer Program aims to develop each student’s practical skills and technique, improve their fitness (particularly components such as speed, strength and agility), increase their knowledge of and passion for The World Game, raise their personal confidence and support their capacity to work effectively in a team. We encourage students to have high aspirations. High standards of behaviour and academic achievement are expected of students in the Soccer Program.


The Inspire Music Program at Southern River College offers students from Year 7 to 12 a diverse range of musical opportunities, with a strong emphasis on performance. Students receive two to five hours of classroom music each week throughout their six years of schooling, in addition to receiving instrumental lessons with an IMSS (Instrumental Music School Services) teacher. Our students’ education is further enriched through participation in one of our ensembles: Intermediate Concert Band, Senior Concert Band, Rock Band, Jazz Band, Contemporary Choir, Percussion Ensemble, Classical Guitar Ensemble and Contemporary Guitar Ensemble.
