Bedford students are encouraged to become involved in the extracurricular activities available at the College; this builds confidence, encourages teamwork and gives students a strong sense of achievement and belonging.
The Student Representative Council (SRC)
|Student Representative Council|
Elected each year by the student body, the SRC is responsible for arranging many of the extracurricular activities including: the College Formal, Theatre Parties, Dance Nights, Barbecues, Pizza Days and the College Yearbook.
The SRC is also responsible for organising community fund-raising events including: Shave Your Head for a Cause, Jeans for Genes Day, Bandanna Day, Red Nose Day, Bandaged Bear Appeal, The Biggest Morning Tea and Harmony Day.
The College Formal
L’aqua, Cockle Bay
The College Formal is organised each year by the SRC.
It’s held at the end of the year when students have almost completed their studies and can relax.
The formal is the ideal time to say farewell to teachers and friends, celebrate upcoming graduation and look forward to the next step in their learning and employment journey.
Harmony Day is held in March each year and is a day when we celebrate the diversity of Australian cultures. The message for Harmony Day is ‘Everyone Belongs’

The Bedford College Dragon Boat Racing Team
Bedford College entered its first team in the Ryde River Dragonboat Racing Competition in 2011. Although we didn’t win the finals, we did come 2nd in one race. Well done Team Bedford!!!
The Bedford Singing Group
In past years we’ve been fortunate to have many students who are musically talented; we are also lucky enough to have a piano and an electronic organ at the College and a number of students who play musical instruments. For the past several years, these talented individuals have formed the Bedford Singing Group.
Since the year 2000, Bedford’s Singing Groups have entertained parents and friends at our Graduation Ceremony, which is held in December each year. (They also entertained themselves during lunchtimes when rehearsals were carried out).
Table tennis is available in the Student Common Room. Many students find that a friendly game of table tennis is a great way to relax and unwind during class breaks. And some students are involved in ongoing table tennis competitions. It’s a rare occasion when visiting the Common Room when there is not a table tennis game in progress.
Whenever possible we endeavour to take our students on excursions that relate to their field of study.
