Co-Curricular in Primary

There are many ways for our students to explore and develop their interests

The NBCS community is thriving with a great range of co-curricular opportunities for students in Primary, from creative and performing arts to sport and STEM.

We offer a variety of co-curricular programs that help develop students’ creativity, passion, personal skills, leadership and team work. Our parent community can find more detailed information on days, times and how to enrol, in the ‘Co-Curricular’ section of our Parent Portal.

Below is a sample of the type of programs on offer for our student community:

We aim to provide students with a comprehensive and balanced program of sporting activities. In doing so, we foster and develop students’ character, social relationships and sportsmanship, embodying our Christian ethos.

Our sports program gives students the opportunity to acquire and develop a range of skills, physical abilities and attitudes that help develop a sense of team and school spirit. This is a solid foundation for a life-long, active lifestyle. Opportunities exist for students to develop skills in individual pursuits such as athletics, surfing or parkour, with team sports available each term for different competitions.

There is also the opportunity for particularly gifted students to develop expertise and discipline that will help them to pursue representative sporting commitments beyond school.

The STEM program evolves and develops with emerging technologies, providing opportunities in coding, robotics, design and engineering. Activities vary in the degree of skill and technology required, with opportunities for students to pursue State, National and International pathways for a range of competitions.
