The co-curricular program at St Andrew’s offers a wide range of opportunities for our students. The College has very successful Sport and Music co-curricular programs, as well as a number of other activities in which students can become involved. All students at St Andrew’s are encouraged to try a range of co-curricular activities. 

Due to the size and range of the co-curricular program, it is split into a number of sections. Links are provided to the co-curricular Sport program and co-curricular Music program. Each year, the College produces a Musical (Primary in the odd years, Secondary in the even years) whilst the Secondary school also produces a play in the odd years. Debating is offered at both the Primary and Secondary level. In addition, there is a wonderful Service program where students can get involved on a regular basis or undertake a Service Trip with the College in the Term 3 holidays. The Secondary school camp program is available on the Outdoor Education page.

Other Co-curricular Activities available (excluding Sport, Music, Performing Arts, Service and Outdoor Education):
