At De La Salle College, we understand that learning goes beyond the classroom. To support and enhance our curriculum, students are encouraged to access our extensive range of co-curricular opportunities, where there truly is something for everyone.
Our House System supports student wellbeing, fostering a deeper sense of belonging, whilst also encompassing a plethora of co-curricular opportunities for students, from sports competitions to fundraising initiatives. Our rich music and drama programs cater for students interested in the performing arts, with performance opportunities and private tuition available. Students studying French or Italian have the opportunity to participate in international tours.
Cultural tours are available to Wilcannia, Papua New Guinea, Manila and Sri Lanka, where social justice and giving back to local communities is the focus. We offer a wide variety of sport choices at all levels, as well as state-level competitions in sports such as weightlifting, cycling and snow-sports. In line with our Lasallian values to respect all persons and have concern for the poor, all students have the opportunity to be involved in our social justice programs and are expected to participate in fundraising or volunteer initiatives each year.
Through co-curricular involvement, students build self-esteem and confidence, ensuring they leave De La Salle College as well-rounded, capable and principled members of society.
