Extracurricular Activities

Camps and Excursions

Activities such as camps and excursions can greatly enhance the progress of learning, offering new, varied, challenging and practical experiences across the learning areas.

Students discover and experience new environmental settings and learn new skills first hand. In most cases there is an additional cost for camps and excursions which helps cover things such as entrance fees, transport and/or equipment hire. Locally based excursions do not incur costs.

Camps and excursions may take the form of:

  • day excursions to places of interest
  • performing arts during and after school hours
  • participation in sports and cultural events
  • music, physical education and outdoor education camps.

Knockout Sport

A variety of sports are available to students throughout the year as an extra-curricular activity. Students are required to complete approved lesson checks with their teachers and pay all monies up front, before they are able to participate on each occasion.

Some of the sports include:

  • Football
  • Cricket
  • Netball
  • Basketball
  • Soccer
  • Indoor Soccer
  • Tennis


The Western Areas Secondary Schools Athletics Carnival incorporates schools from Port Lincoln, Ceduna, Roxby Downs, Whyalla and Port Augusta. The dates for this event are published through newsletters and parent notices.
