Extracurricular Programs

The extra-curricular programs offered at St Catherine’s Catholic College are extensive and provide the opportunity to undertake new challenges and try new activities ranging across sport, music, art, drama, intellectual challenge, multimedia and community service. These activities provide opportunities for students to achieve balance in their schooling experience and to become responsible and involved members of different groups.
