Co Curricular

Home groups are an important feature of Years 5 and 6, providing pastoral care for the students. 

A highlight for students in Year 5 is the annual camp to Mill Valley Ranch. The camp provides opportunities for students to develop their responsibility and leadership skills through team-building and physical activities. The daily devotion times allow students to discuss and reflect on Biblical truths. These experiences help our students to grow into confident thinkers and problem-solvers. Each student is encouraged to participate in our Years 5 and 6 choir. It is a delight to hear a number of practised, united and skilled voices perform at special occasions throughout the year.
