Co-curriculum

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:

SPORT

  • Athletics and Cross Country
  • Australian Rules football
  • Badminton
  • Basketball
  • Equestrian
  • Gym Sports
  • Hockey
  • Netball
  • Pedal Prix
  • Rowing
  • Soccer
  • Softball
  • Swimming
  • Tennis
  • Touch
  • Volleyball
  • Water polo

PERFORMANCE

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
  • Choral
  • 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.

  • Debating
  • Law – Mooting and Mock Trial
  • Philosophy
  • STEM

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.
