Beyond the ClassroomPRINT THIS ARTICLE
Activities beyond the classroom are an essential part of a student’s holistic development. We provide an array of co-curricular activities designed to introduce students to a variety of challenges and experiences, and allow them to extend themselves in areas of interest and passion.
Students can compete in a range of representative sports through our tiered Sporting Program. The College has an active co-curricular music program, with many musical ensembles that cater for students of all abilities. Students can participate in drama productions, music groups and the annual College Musical.
Students can also be involved in debating and public speaking through the Catholic Schools Debating Association (CSDA) competition held in Terms 1 and 2, as well as a number of other public speaking competitions.
