High School students are able to participate in a wide variety of activities which help them develop leadership qualities, attain academic excellence and enlarge and strengthen their friendships outside of the school environment. Activities for students in Years 11 and 12 occur weekly.

Activities include cultural and social gatherings, local outings, study sessions, study weekends, local and interstate service projects, community work, volunteering and spiritual formation.
