Extracurricular Activities

A St Michael’s education allows students to discover their own talents and provides opportunities to fully explore their interests.


We encourage our students to learn more than just the fundamentals, engaging them in a wide array of co-curricular activities. These activities include academic, extracurricular and sporting activities which are supported by committed staff who believe in the importance of educating the whole person. The interests and talents of students are nurtured in a wide variety of activities including, but not limited to:

  • Coding club
  • Student media team
  • Voice of Youth (public speaking)
  • Gardening club
  • Debating
  • National competitions for english and maths
  • Tournament of Minds (lateral thinking and problem solving)
  • Student leadership teams
  • Athletics, swimming and cross country carnivals
  • Netball
  • Basketball
  • Soccer
  • AFL
  • Rugby league
  • Cricket

At St Michael’s we educate more than just the mind. We offer our students the chance to tap into their imaginations and to improve their physical skills.

For gifted and talented students, St Michael’s Primary has established programs of work to challenge and extend these students.

Creative Arts is an important part of the curriculum, in particular, music. The school has a specialist music teacher, school choir and school band, allowing students to express themselves through music. Whole school concerts and Creative Arts expos provide opportunities for students to showcase what they have learnt.
