Tournament of the Minds (TOM)
TOM offers teams of students the opportunity to solve authentic, open-ended challenges that foster creative, divergent thinking whilst developing collaborative enterprise, excellence and teamwork.
Challenges are set in the following disciplines: The Arts, Language Literature, Social Sciences and STEM. Students are selected from Years 3 to 6 to try out for the TOM team each year.
Students are given the opportunity to sit the University of NSW ICAS tests for academic excellence.
ASPIRE is a diocesan program of excellence for students in performing arts. Students audition in November each year for a place in the vocal ensemble, instrumental ensemble, drama ensemble and dance ensemble. Those who are selected attend rehearsals to prepare for a showcase in August each year.
Students in Years 5 and 6 are invited to nominate themselves to be a part of our Mini Vinnies group. The Mini Vinnies group learn about social justice issues and organise fundraisers and events to raise awareness and funds for those in need.
