The extra curricular programs offered at St Catherine’s Catholic College are extensive and allow students to undertake new challenges and try new activities ranging across sport, music, art, drama, multimedia and community service.


SENIOR CHOIR

This year we will have a senior choir on Loyola Campus.  Rehearsal time will be weekly from 10:30 - 11:30 on Tuesdays.  Students who nominate to be part of the choir must ensure they attend on a weekly basis.  

LOYOLA DRAMA CLUB 

Loyola Drama Club (Years 4, 5 & 6) is held at the Tom Gard Centre from 3:30 until 4:30 on Mondays. Interested students require a permission note from Mrs Cornish.

 ART CLUB - Imagination Factory 2015

Mercy and Loyola Art Club, otherwise known as the Imagination Factory will recommence in Term two on both campuses. This year, we are running art club over two lunch breaks during the school day, with the students attending both sessions offered. There will be no application process this year as we have opened it up to one year level per term. All that we are asking from the students, is that they come with voluntary enthusiasm and a willingness to participate during their own play time. Here is a brief outline of who and when, with further details will be available at the beginning of each term for interested students.

HOMEWORK CLUB

Homework Club is on the Loyola Campus in the Loyola Library. It is on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 3.15pm - 4.00pm. Students are encouraged to attend to complete their homework, work on assignments or ask for assistance with specific subjects i.e. maths. There is a teacher on duty each afternoon to answer any questions students have.

 ACTIVE AFTER SCHOOL SPORTS PROGRAMME

The Bad News: The Australian Sports Commission has discontinued Active After School Communities.  This is the programme which funded our active after school sports programme.  

 The Good News:  In its place the commission has introduced "Sporting Schools"  which, according to the ASC website will commence in Term 3 2015.  Based on this information our Active Afternoon Sports Programme will not be offered until Term 3 when we hope to be successful in our application to participate within this new structure.  Please visit http://www.sportingschools.gov.au/  for more information.  

 INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC TUTORING

Catholic Schools have a traditional commitment to the Arts.  Instrumental music tuition was often a hallmark of Catholic Convent Schools. Today many Catholic Schools see the Arts and Instrumental Music tuition as an important enrolment drawcard.  The pursuit of learning to play a musical instrument is widely recognised as contributing to the cognitive, social and spiritual development of those involved. Through the SCCC Instrumental Music Programme students can access private music lessons within the school day in a variety of instruments including vocal, piano, guitar, flute, violin and drums.  If you are interested in your child participating, please pick up an expression of interest form at either Mercy or Loyola reception.
