Beyond the Classroom
Extracurricular opportunities for students to unlock their creative potential, develop a talent or pursue a passion.
We help every student shine!
At Caroline Chisholm, we believe it is important for students to pursue interests to find what they are passionate about. We give them exposure to a range of exciting opportunities to unlock their creative potential, develop a talent or follow a passion.
Creative and Performing Arts
We encourage our students to explore their passions and talents. We have a range of opportunities available for students to participate in creative and performing arts activities and programs such as music, drama and dance.
Sport is a valued part of our school’s curriculum, contributing to the development of the whole child by providing opportunities for social, physical, emotional and moral learning. Participation, enjoyment and skill development are the cornerstones of school sport. In addition to school sport our girls have the opportunity to take part in a variety of Gala Days.
Representative pathways are also available through the Parramatta Diocesan Secondary Schools Sports Council.
At Caroline Chisholm, we derive our charism from the actions and words of our patron, Caroline Chisholm. Our social justice program, 'Caroline’s Footsteps' allows students to put their faith into action. In addition to fundraising, we have a strong educational focus, sharing with our students the stories of the groups we support. Our whole school contributes to Caritas projects during Lent, and each of the six year groups have an ongoing commitment to a charitable cause.
Excursions, Camps and Retreats
Every student loves to get out of the classroom and explore.
Our students benefit greatly from school trips where they are able to observe new things not available at school such as rare and exotic wildlife and plants, different cultures and the stories of our history. These experiences lead to deeper understanding of learning subjects.
Camps and retreats are also wonderful opportunities for students to develop independence, grow in faith, form strong friendships and make life-long memories!
