Co-curricular Activities

Co-curricular Sports & Activities

The College encourages the development of the whole person not just the academic, so we offer numerous opportunites for students to participate in co-curricular sports and activities.

 

All sports are dependent on student participation numbers and parent volunteers.

The College will endeavour to offer as many co-curricualr sports and activities as possible; however, in order to ensure the viability of the activity we need committed parent volunteers who will assist with the running of each sport and activity. This can include conveners, managers, coaches and other volunteer positions.
