Extra Curricular Activities
There are a number of activities offered to students such as:
concerts and music performance evenings,
as well as opportunities to help with Primary School sporting activities and groups such as Amnesty International.
Many of these require leadership and students are encouraged to become involved in these activities to help them develop as individuals and as part of a community. The skills developed become very important in future years when we look for students to take more significant leadership roles in the Senior School.
In keeping with our emphasis on providing students with opportunities to broaden their experiences and gain different perspectives, a number of strategic activities are placed throughout the year. Students will attend a Year Level Camp. Emphasis is placed on physical activities, the local environment and personal reflections on relationships.
ADDITIONAL EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES FOR YEAR 9 STUDENTS
An optional Outdoor Education Opportunity is also available to students and occurs late in Term 1. This five day camp at Wollangarra, near Licola, involves students experiencing a 2-night 3-day hike in Victoria’s High Country. A focus of the camp is to develop a healthy perspective towards the environment. Interest in this camp should be highlighted in your subject Selections.
City Cite. In the second semester, all Year 9 Students will experience a week in the city gaining valuable exposure to the culture and dynamics that are a unique part of a large city such as Melbourne. Through small task-oriented groups, students will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of characteristics that make up city living and in the last week of third term. During the last week of Term 2, students will be engaged in the Student Community Involvement Program (SCIP). This is an exploration of the significant aspect of our Australian culture that is volunteer community service. It is also a chance to contribute to those in need in our community and support people working in that space. Urban Mission is a voluntary program which students need to apply for.
