Holy Family Emerton Extra Curricular

Extra-curricular Opportunities

A Holy Family education allows students to discover their own talents and provides opportunities to fully explore these. We encourage our students to learn more than just the fundamentals, engaging them in a wide array of extra-curricular activities.

We run a number of Creative and Performing Arts programs, including a school Band program which is a part of our curriculum. In addition to this, a dance and drama program is offered to all students before school. Our students regularly participate in competitions, concerts and performances with other schools with the support of specialist creative arts teachers.

As well as our Creative Arts programs, Holy Family runs a free, two-day school holiday program designed to give students a “jump-start” into the next school term. This program is run before each new school term and incorporates a number of games and learning challenges designed to prepare students for the term ahead.
