High School Extracurricular
We believe academic subjects and extracurricular activities complement each other and are essential to student wellbeing, education and spirituality.
Extracurricular activities foster commitment, confidence and create a sense of belonging to the School community. Students are encouraged to participate in at least one extracurricular activity per term.
Our School is blessed with excellent sporting facilities. Committed coaches are passionate and dedicated, committed to ensuring students achieve their personal best. We have an on-site biokineticist who is available to assist sports students at no extra cost.
