Co-curricular programs

As well as offering students one of the most comprehensive senior curriculums in the state, St Marys Senior High School provides many opportunities for our young people to develop skills beyond the classroom.

Among the range of activities offered, some are designed to enhance student learning and consolidate academic achievement, while others enable students to develop the social awareness and communication skills highly valued by employers, scholarship providers and tertiary education institutions.

All of these programs invite students to reach beyond the day-to-day of the classroom and actively participate in developing a vibrant school community. Whether student-run or teacher-organised, all co-curricular learning opportunities enrich and intensify students’ overall school experience.
