High School Extracurricular Opportunities:

This year we have a whole host of activities available for high school students to get involved in to broaden and deepen their learning and also have some fun. In order for students to get the most out of their time at school we strongly encourage each student to find something extra that they’re interested in and get involved with the extracurricular activities the school offers.

We encourage parents and students to have a look at the following activities that are being planned and consider which ones you might enjoy. Some students have the tendency to avoid doing anything extra, whereas other student have the tendency to try and do everything extra – parents are encouraged to assist students in making decisions as both extremes are typically unhelpful in the long run.
