Extra Curricular Activities

Students at Waverley Christian College Primary School are provided with a wide range of extracurricular activities to broaden and enrich their school experience. For many years, the school has run programs catering for those students with interests in the areas of music, performance, chess, sports and fitness. Most of these programs are free to join, others are provided by experts external to the school and may have a cost. Either way, all of our programs are highly engaging and are a great way for students to meet other like-minded children adding enormous value to the spirit and sense of community we endeavour to foster.
