Co-Curricular Activities

Education is more than just an “academic pursuit”.  At Macquarie, we believe that a quality education should provide a rich tapestry of experiences that maximizes each student’s potential and enhances their enjoyment of school.  To that end, our co-curricular program seeks to develop and extend students in ways that are not possible in the “academic curriculum”.

The Macquarie Junior School co-curricular program provides opportunities for teachers, parents and students to work co-operatively in an enjoyable context that is very different to the normal classroom; thus providing an important means of building relationships and providing pastoral care.  

Whether it is involvement in a Sporting Team, the Performing Arts, or the Dubbo Eisteddfod, the co-curricular program adds an exciting and challenging depth and breadth to the total educational experience being offered by the school.
