SPORT AT COLLEGE
At College, regardless of skill or experience, students have the opportunity to participate and challenge themselves in any sport to achieve their personal best.
Following our balanced approach to education, we provide opportunities across a broad range of sports so that all students can engage in physical activity that appeals to them and suits their individual attributes.

EQUESTRIAN AT COLLEGE
A unique opportunity for day and boarding students to be involved in College equestrian activities at school. We also offer boarding for students horses which is a wonderful comfort for many of our boarding students.
We are very proud of our unique facilities and our strong tradition of excellent equestrian programs at the College. We offer two subjects within the curriculum and students from as young as Prep can participate in our co-curricular program.
OUTDOOR EDUCATION AT COLLEGE
Our students learn invaluable life skills through participating in age-appropriate outdoor education experiences during their time at the College.
Our camps are a significant part of our school culture – a time for students to bond together, step outside their comfort zones, test resilience and learn new skills.
MUSIC AT COLLEGE
We want to give all our students the finest possible musical experiences.
Our music programs are characterised by rigorous learning challenges and students discover that sustained effort can lead to the mastery of skills and reward for hard work.
We offer classroom Music from Early Learning to Year 7, in addition to our individual tuituin schedule.
PERFORMING ARTS AT COLLEGE
We have a strong dramatic tradition at the College and our dynamic productions draw large audiences from our school and the local community. There is a wide range of opportunities for students of all ages to be involved in our annual productions. This may be on the stage as actors and musicians, or behind the scenes with lighting, sound backstage, hair and make-up or supporting the front of house.
PUBLIC SPEAKING AND DEBATING AT COLLEGE
Throughout the year, we have had students enter and participate in a range of competitions, including: Lions Youth of the Year, Legacy Junior Public Speaking, Eisteddfod, ICCES Debating and, most recently, House Debating. And a highlight, of course, was the Staff v Student Debate!
