Beyond the Classroom

To ensure our students have every opportunity to realise their full potential we focus on providing a quality holistic education that encompasses academic studies, sport, culture, service and personal development. To complement our rigorous academic studies students are extended and challenged further through diverse and enriching programs outside the classrooms. Blackfriars has established a multitude of holistic personal development opportunities embedded in the curriculum including outdoor challenges to Kangaroo Island and Kuitpo Forest, father/son camps, mentor days, student exchanges, retreats, elective programs and international pilgrimages and cultural languages tours to Asia and Europe.

Additionally, our students are expected to participate in co-curricular activities that nurture his own interests and talents. Students choose from a host of options such as sports, chess, music, public speaking, environmental ambassadors, film-making and debating. We instil in our boys the merits of being active contributors within the local and global communities, our success is measured not only in the school results achieved but also in the man who he becomes.
