Extra Curricular Activities

​ 

Our strong focus on quality education is complemented by services and programs outside the classroom.
 

Speech and Drama

Being involved in Speech and Drama can make a positive difference to a child’s academic and social development. It can increase a child’s self-confidence, in and out of the classroom, improve creative and analytical thought and develop physical. Practical skills such as reading and public speaking are also be improved in our one-hour classes.

Instrumental Music 

The Instrumental Music Program offers a unique and exciting experience of music. Group and individual lessons are available for:
 
• flute
• clarinet
• alto/tenor saxophone​
• trumpet
• trombone
• baritone​

A weekly rehearsal session is held before school for an hour for those in the Instrumental Band Program. Students also have weekly small group tutorials or individual lessons during school time for half an hour. Students in the Band perform within the school community and, occasionally, perform in the wider community. Students also have the opportunity to participate in the annual Queensland Catholic Schools Music Festival and local band festivals.

Chess

Chess is a game of great skill that also has many skills to teach our students.  One-hour chess classes are held once a week after school and they help children learn logical reasoning, planning skills, anticipation skills, the need for persistence and how to win and lose.
