We learn many of our most profound and lasting lessons in co-curricular activities.
Girls have the opportunity to win with grace and lose with dignity, work productively with others and be part of a team, master a skill, enjoy a personal best or dig deep to find the ways to overcome a hurdle, tackle a challenging musical piece, celebrate a success and take critical advice.
The skills gained are not only practical. They also learn self-discipline, teamwork and values that can be drawn upon throughout their lives.
At Seymour, students have access to the following co-curricular programs:
- Athletics and Cross Country
- Australian Rules football
- Gym Sports
- Pedal Prix
- Water polo
Participation in performing ensembles and activities provides many benefits due to the close ties with the Music and Drama curricular programs. Co-curricular participation reinforces, extends and broadens the knowledge and skills covered in the classroom.
As a member of an ensemble, students develop their skills in self-discipline, performance and working in a team.
Seymour offers an extensive range of activities in Performance including:
- Bands and Ensembles – Strings, Orchestra, Big Bands, Concert Band
- Celtic – Pipe Band, Highland Dance
- Musical Theatre
CLUBS AND SOCIETIES
Seymour offers a range of clubs and societies to enable students to partake in activities that they already enjoy or to become involved in something new.
- Law – Mooting and Mock Trial
Each of our programs provide important opportunities for enhancing knowledge, skills, friendships and confidence. Participation with like-minded friends, as well as the opportunity to forge new relationships, are a key part of co-curricular participation. Equally, developing skills and an appreciation of making a commitment to a group and learning are important aspects of being a member of the Seymour community.
Combining the strength and athleticism of a gymnast with the grace and coordination of a ballerina, Highland Dancing is a fun activity for improving stamina and fitness. From our foundation classes through to our advanced class, there is a range of opportunities to join our Celtic team here at Seymour.
