Students in Years 3-6 have the opportunity to participate in a musical every two years and in the Wakakirri Story-Dance Competition in alternate years.

In Year 2 students can learn either violin or cello, with instruments and tuition being provided by the School and in Year 5 all children participate in the Berimba Band, with all instruments provided and lessons a part of the weekly school routine.

There is also a dedicated Year 5/6 class located in the Performing Arts Centre which feeds into the Year 7 and 8 Performing Arts stream.

Outdoor education and camps are well-loved activities for our children from Years 2 to 6 that typically include an exploration of our own outdoor education site on the banks of the Cox’s River, camps at Port Hacking and Shoalhaven, in partnership with Anglican Youthworks, and a biennial trip to Canberra for Years 5 and 6.
