The Department encourages all children to make the most of their time at school and to become actively involved in their community. To foster this, we encourage participation in activities that occur outside of normal school hours - this is what we mean by extracurricular activities.
The extracurricular activities supported by the Department include the following.
Performing Arts Unit
Performing Arts Unit programs are available to government school students. The unit showcases excellence in the performing arts through a range of performance opportunities.
If your child is a natural performer, a budding musician, a dancer, or a singer, the Performing Arts Unit could be the perfect opportunity for them to shine.
The Performing Arts Unit forms ensembles of students ranging from 10 to 18 years of age. Students in the ensembles are selected by audition and rehearse weekly to prepare for performances.
Performances range from large government and corporate events to outdoor festivals.

Participants are provided with expert tuition to enhance their performance and musical skills during the rehearsal period.
The 2015 Victorian State Schools Spectacular took place at Hisense Arena, Melbourne Park, on 12 September.
