During Term 4, the Level 5 students are involved in a Bike Education program whilst the Level 6 students take part in an elective based “Club 6” program. These activities may include photography, cooking, dance, art and sport.


Level 5 students meet with the Foundation children for specific activities. This successful Buddies Program develops close bonds, encouraging leadership, cooperation, responsibility and friendship between the students. 


Level 6 students visit our capital city of Canberra. This tour is a highlight for the Level 6 students in their last year of primary school. Tours to the Australian War Memorial, Questacon, Parliament Education Centre, Institute of Sport and the High Court of Australia are included.

Level 5 camp takes place at the Summit Adventure Park. It is a multi-award winning venue located on 50 acres, just 90 minutes from Melbourne. They are industry experts in large group accommodation, camps and events, catering, activities and custom programs.


Every Friday during Terms 1 and 2, Level 5 and 6 students participate in Interschool Sports. Music lessons incorporate students playing instruments in classroom ensembles.

Level 5 and Level 6 is a wonderful time for the students to embrace leadership and responsibility.
