St Stephen’s School fosters learning beyond the classroom through a range of extra-curricular activities that allow students to engage with their wider interests, socialise and experience new pursuits. Some of these include Sport and The Arts programs, clubs and volunteer opportunities.
Learning is a life-long adventure. Some of the extra-curricular activities we offer are outlined below.
- Whether under the spotlight or behind-the scenes, students can bring stories to life in the School’s busy calendar of drama, dance and musical performances. Cross-campus drama productions bring the community together every two years for exciting and colourful stage shows.
- The St Stephen’s School Dance Company offers students the opportunity to be part of a special troupe which represents the School at events and dance competitions throughout the year. Students hone their skills at regular rehearsals, learning choreography across a number of dance styles to perform.
- St Stephen’s School provides opportunities for students with a passion for music to learn, practice and perform – the three key elements to music education. Students can perform in a range of choirs, ensembles, bands and orchestras. They can also take part in the Instrumental Music Tuition program and individual tuition. Our musicians practice their performance skills at a host of shows across the year, for School events, community audiences and more.
- Students can also join a club to learn something new or further develop their skills. The choice of clubs on offer enable our students to explore a diverse range of different hobbies and interests beyond the classroom environment with classmates and friends. Some of the clubs available include Chess, Debating, Robotics, LEGO Club, Dance, Public Speaking, Mathematics, Visual Arts, Language, Music, Knitting, Reading, Social Justice, Drama, and Mock Trials.
- The School is also a strategic partner with STEMSmart, a technology education provider, who offer after-school clubs and school holiday programs in a range of areas including Virtual Reality, robotics, and digital music.
- There are also leadership and development programs available including the Duke of Edinburgh Award and the Propel Leadership program at Carramar. Propel Year 11 students volunteer to learn about communication, project management and leadership from a range of guest speakers. This culminates in the students organising a whole-School event when they become leaders in Year 12.
- If sports are your child’s passion, they can represent the School in a range of sports including Australian Rules Football, soccer, basketball netball, volleyball, tennis, rugby and cricket. Our Elite Athlete Program and Athlete Development Program cater for students who excel in their chosen sport and help athletes to balance training and school effectively.
