Co-Curricular Activites

At St Virgil’s College, the Junior School provides a well organised and varied sporting programme. In addition to swimming, cross country and athletics, we also offer a number of team sports including football, soccer, futsal, hockey, basketball, water polo, flippa ball, touch football, tennis and badminton. Boys are expected to participate in at least one team event each year. 

The Junior School provides a comprehensive music programme where the students not only have their weekly class music lesson, but also the opportunity to sing in our choir, learn a musical instrument and also join our Junior School Band. 

All students from Year 3 are also provided a camp experience, and opportunities for extension experiences in woodwork, geography, leadership and drama.

Co-curricular activities are delivered in a safe environment where students and their families are very welcome and valued. 

These activities are many and varied and promote:

  • Participation, cooperation and enjoyment;
  • The development of skills;
  • Health and wellbeing; and
  • Leadership and sportsmanship.

Excursions & Visiting Performers

Teachers incorporate a wide variety of excursions into their class curriculum. These experiences reinforce what is being learnt in class and often provide interesting, informative, hands on experiences for our students. Regular performers also visit the College adding to the comprehensive teaching program already provided.

Chess Club

This activity takes place during lunch time once a week for boys who are interested in learning the game and further developing their skills. The boys who attend participate in a competition that runs throughout the year.

Sport 

The growth and development of boys into fine young men is enhanced by their involvement in a wide variety of activities. An important part of the co-curricular offerings at St Virgil’s is the provision of an educationally sound sporting programme. Through the activities offered, our students have the opportunity to develop their talents, express their individual personalities and build life-long friendships.

The strong sporting history and fine traditions of the College are built around involvement and a spirit of working together even though not all participants may be as talented as each other. Each boy is recognised for the contribution he can make and respect for individual abilities is emphasised; teamwork and commitment are valued.

St Virgil’s participates in a wide variety of sporting competitions and have opportunities for boys of all ability and interest levels. At all times we stress respect for our fellow players, our opponents and the officials and to have fun!
