We know that every student has many and at the very least one special gift, talent or interest to uncover during their secondary schooling.
Many successful people attribute their love for their work or profession to first experiencing it at a school based co-curricular activity.
Most programs are free of charge and students who actively participate typically experience better academic results and enjoy more satisfaction with their overall learning.
The benefits for students are numerous, including:
Providing a safe place for students to try out and discover new talents or interests
Building confidence through trying new activities and experiences
Experiencing breadth and depth in all subject areas
Allowing students to socialize with students from different year levels
Creating a balance between academic and sporting endeavours
Opportunities to make new friends through common interests
Building working relationships with students and teachers outside the classroom
Working with others in real world settings ie. as part of a team or group working towards a common goal
Keeping students busy and engaged in their learning
Showcasing excellence within the College community
Offering all inclusive opportunities where diversity of talents is accepted and celebrated
