The Friends' School


The Friends’ School Co-curricular Program
provides a range of valuable educational experiences for students from Years 3–12 in addition to those provided by the School’s formal curriculum.

Co-curricular activities are broadly grouped and described under the headings of Sport, Music, Service, and Enrichment and Extension.

We encourage all students to participate in at least one sport (but no more than two at any one time) and to take part in some musical, dramatic, cultural and service activities.

Each student from Year 7-12 is encouraged to undertake at least 10 hours of School or community service each year.

We ask parents to assist their child or children in maintaining a sensible balance between their academic and co-curricular commitments.

The success of our co-curricular program depends on the support, skills and services of parents, particularly in the sporting area, and we ask that parents offer some assistance where possible.
