Co-Curricular in Secondary
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 Secondary 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 Global Opportunities programme complement activities at school, within the local community and across Australia. Our parent community can find more detailed information on days, times and how to enrol, in the ‘Co-Curricular’ section of our Parent Portal.

We offer an extensive range of Global Opportunities, providing enriching learning experience for students both nationally and internationally. Curriculum tours enhance learning related to specific subject areas, with service and leadership initiatives, cultural immersions, sport tours and language exchanges. The suite of prospective tours across a 6-year period is made available to assist students and families with planning, with a strong focus on encouraging students to earn and save to contribute to their experience.

There are many avenues for students to explore and develop their musical talents with a great breadth of ensembles, along with private music tuition. The diverse program caters for different styles, so that students can pursue different genres such as classical, jazz and pop music.

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.
