Extra-Curricular Activities

The After School Activities program offers students from FS2 to Year 11 the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities (ECAs) aimed at engaging, developing skills and further enhancing their learning journey. ECAs are run free of charge by our teachers, 3 days a week, and all students are encouraged to participate in at least one ECA activity each term.  

FS2 ECAs will run from 3:00 – 3:45PM (Monday - Wednesday)  

Primary and Secondary ECAs will run from 3:10 – 4:10 PM (Monday - Wednesday)  

External ECAs will run Sunday – Wednesday 3:10- 4:10 PM and on Thursday from 1:10-2:10PM 

Children can sign up to an activity per day, Monday to Wednesday, free of charge, as well as any number of external clubs, which incur an additional charge.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I pay for the ASA club at school? 

    No, all payments are made directly to the ASA providers. 

  • What is the difference between ECAs and ASAs? 

    ECAs are free activities run by our teachers Monday to Wednesday, whilst ASAs are paid activities run by external providers every day of the week. 

  • Are ASAs run inside the school? 

    Most of the activities run inside the school, some activities are provided offsite. 

  • How can I sign my child up to an ECA/ASA? 

    A list of ECAs/ASAs and an information letter are sent to parents every term which will contain all the information about the ECA and ASA offerings and how to sign up. Parents are encouraged to discuss with their children what activities they would like to attend for the term. Sign up is done through the website for both internal and external activities, or directly with the providers for the external activities. The system operates on the first come, first served basis so our most popular activities will fill up quickly. 

  • How will I know if my child has been successfully signed up to an ECA?  

    You will receive a confirmation email once you have completed the sign up.  

  • Can my child choose an activity every day of the week? 

    Yes, children can choose an activity 5 days a week, 1 activity per day. 

  • My child hasn’t managed to sign up to their favourite activity, is there a waiting list? 

    Yes, all ECAs have a waiting list and parents will be contacted if a place becomes available. If a place doesn’t become available and the same ECA is run again next term those students are placed in that ECA prior to the sign up.
