Choirs and Music
R. G. Sinclair has student choirs. The primary choir is for all students in grades one to three, and the junior choir is for all students in grades four to six. An intermediate choir is offered to any interested students to participate. The primary and junior choirs practice weekly and perform at assemblies, concerts, and at the Kiwanis Festival.

For the past few years, the choirs have been awarded a gold seal at the Kiwanis Festival and have performed in the Festival Highlights Concert. Instrumental music is offered to students in grade 7 and 8 who are interested for a nominal fee. This program is in partnership with the L.D.S.B. and lessons are given by a qualified instructor during the school day. Instruments can be rented at a reasonable cost.
