Student experiences: A co-curriculum that support success in all facets

At ELTHAM, students are encouraged to explore and uncover new passions through a variety of co-curricular activities. The student experiences provided here are designed to broaden horizons, allow young people to dig deeper into already established interests, and make meaningful social connections with likeminded students and staff.  

Our co-curricular program - facilitated under 8 key themes - is the cornerstone of our authentic learning approach and holistic education of the whole person.
