Providing a range of co-curricular opportunities is important to us because we value each child’s individual skills and interests, and we want to give every opportunity for students to follow their passions, to broaden and enrich their experiences, to grow and further their potential.
These enrichment opportunities supplement the rich whole school programs in all these curriculum areas for all classes and all students.
