With a wide range of opportunities and activities, including performing arts, music, sport, clubs and societies, our students develop new capabilities, balanced with their academic pursuits.
By participating in these opportunities, students build their confidence and develop teamwork, leadership, followership and public speaking skills.
Clubs and Societies
Students can join clubs, societies and teams that interest them...
A group of enthusiastic players who enjoy lunchtime games and inter-school competitions.
Students are invited to join Craft Club, an extension program focussed on arts and crafts, where they can work together to design and create a variety of items, under the guidance of our specialist art, design and media teachers. Using their design and art skills to sketch, plan and coordinate their own projects, resources and materials, students develop resilience, grit and creative problem solving skills and gain great experience.
Here students are encouraged to research topics, gain knowledge of current affairs, use logic to develop a case and consider counterarguments, and develop confidence and public speaking skills. Students from Year 5 to Year 12 can participate in our inter-school competition.
