Activities, Events, Clubs and Groups

Students at the College have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of co-curricular activities including debating and public speaking, chess, eisteddfods, a bi-annual college production and other performing arts activities.

Activities are organised by the prefects and student groups. Lunchtime activities include various interhouse sports. Activities are also organised for the afternoon on Founders' Day.

Events such "Meet the Teacher" for Year 7 and new families enable families to meet and enjoy each other's company.

Socials and evenings for senior students are held each term and assemblies, also led by the student body, include guest speakers and student items. An annual event is the Talent Quest where students can demonstrate their multiple talents to the whole college community.

Fundraisers for the many charities supported by the student body are also organised. These have included The Red Cross Easter Egg Appeal, support for the Edmund Rice Sinon College in Tanzania, Daffodil Day, Red Nose Day, CARITAS, Motor Neurone Disease, RSPCA, Edmund Rice Camps, North West Animal Shelter, Beyond Blue, MS Readathon, St Vincent de Paul, blood donation - Club Red and Jump Rope for Heart.

The College has offered trips to destinations such as the Northern Territory, the ski slopes of Victoria and New Zealand, Singapore, New Caledonia and Europe. Exploring our global village is seen as a worthwhile pursuit.
