Extra-Curricular Activities

At BSC we offer a well-rounded curriculum, enhanced by a multitude of extra-curricular offerings, not usually seen in a school of our modest size. This comes about due to the dedication and enthusiasm of our teaching staff who work hard to create engaging opportunities for all types of learners.

There are a number of ways we offer students the opportunity to shine, to extend and challenge themselves. This includes:

A variety of competitions, including the National Maths, English & Science Competitions, Writing competitions including Book Reviews, Science Talent Search, National History Challenge, Australian Geography Competition, Asia Wise Competition, Game Design (Computing)
