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 Catherine McAuley, 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.
Students are encouraged to participate in areas of interest and their involvement and achievement is celebrated.
The following are some other extra-curricular activities that are offered at Catherine McAuley.
School and Representative Sport
At Catherine McAuley we offer a range of competitive and recreational sports and activities to cater for students' interests and abilities.
Sport is a valued part of a 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.
Representative pathways are also available through the Parramatta Diocese Secondary Schools Sports Council. These include:
Excursions and Retreats
Our students benefit greatly from school trips, and these experiences lead to deeper understanding of learning subjects.
Retreats and reflection days form a significant part of each girl’s spiritual growth, culminating in a three-day residential retreat for senior students.
Camps and retreats can be wonderful opportunities for students to develop independence, grow in faith, form strong friendships and make life-long memories!
Social Justice Initiatives
Our students are offered a wide variety of local community activities to help develop a sense of pride, respect and responsibility for themselves and others. This positive participation and actions can be seen in how we interact and learn with one another, work collaboratively and take ownership of our behaviour as well as active involvement in faith-based experiences.
