Event description
An opportunity for high school students and parents to learn from leading organisation representatives to create enriching extracurriculars.

About this Event

When we hear the word, "Extracurriculars" in Australia, we often think of sport, music or a school activity such as debating.

While there is great value in these activities, there are so many more amazing extracurricular opportunities for students to discover!

These opportunities can help students deepen their learning, find their passion and influence their decisions and pathways for years to come.

The Extracurricular Summit is ideal for students in Year 7 and above. Students will learn from inspiring speakers, come away with practical tips to finding their passion and hear student case studies to help them rethink how they approach their current and future extracurricular activities all in time for the summer holidays!
