Activities

//Activities

There are many activities organised through the school and the boarding house.

This is to ensure that our students stay active. Exercise is very beneficial and has been shown to help the whole body cope better with stress, and helps the brain to function at its best for optimal learning. Hence, all students in Years 7-11 are required to participate in at least one activity per week. They are free to choose in which activity they participate from the variety provided at school, from external providers, or they can organise their own activity such as a weekly skate park session.

After-School Activities

During the week, a variety of after-school activities are available for students to participate in. These sessions are run by both boarding and teaching staff. Students can participate in a school-organised or an externally provided activity.

Weekend Activities

Regular activities are organised by staff for those students who stay in the house on the weekends. The schedule of activities is usually published at the beginning of each term.

Weekend activities usually occur on Saturday. Previous activities have included:

  • Walk and picnic around the lake
  • Swimming at the aquatic centre or the beach
  • Shopping in Canberra
  • Laser tag
  • Ten pin bowling
  • Rock climbing
  • Go-Karts
  • Paintball
  • Movies
  • Mountain biking

Sunday is usually kept as a day of rest for students.

Externally Provided Activities

Many of our students take part in the externally provided activities such as:

  • Rugby with the Jindabyne Bush Pigs
  • Dancing
  • Gym
  • Karate
  • Navy Cadets
  • Nippers
  • Scouts
  • Dragon boating with the Snow Dragons
  • Swimming club
  • Trampolining
  • Winter Sports Club at Perisher.

For more information please contact Mrs Julie Wright.
