Throughout the year students will be participating in either 2, 3 or 4 week rotations of a variety of sports including amongst others gymnastics, swimming lessons, court games, fitness, tennis, bush walking, self-defence, bush walking, golf, indoor sports, volleyball and field games.

All school ensembles participate in many performance opportunities throughout the year, within the school community as well as locally, nationally and internationally, with the senior ensembles having toured to Tasmania, the Gold Coast, New Zealand, the USA and Japan.
Music is a performing art and as such we place a high emphasis on the development of skill in this area. We also have a number of events throughout the year aimed at encouraging and inspiring young musicians. Peripatetic tutoring is offered as part of the cocurricular music program.
