All students are expected to participate in school organised activities on Wednesday afternoons for approximately 90 minutes each week from various activities.

  • Interschool sport competitions
  • ​School musical and drama productions

  • Recreation and leisure activities

  • Guest speakers

Three Carnivals for Homestead swimming, athletics and cross-country are scheduled during the year.

The school does not have insurance to cover injury sustained to students during school activities. Parents are advised to take out their own cover if they wish.


The School is divided into 4 smaller units called “Homesteads”. Students stay in the same Homestead for a variety of competitions for the time they are at school. Where possible, brothers and sisters are kept in the same Homestead.

The student Homestead leaders are selected by the students themselves. They play a major role in organisation of Homestead sporting days (Swimming, Cross-Country and Athletics Carnivals).
