In addition to a variety of educational excursions and incursions, our Marsden Park Primary students may be involved in a wide range of extra-curricular activities which will complement their overall RJ learning experience. Gradually, as the Marsden Park Campus is developed, students may be involved in similar activities to those listed below, noting that activities will vary from time to time based on student interest and staff expertise:

  • Music Performance Groups
    Singing groups and choirs, dance groups and instrumental groups.

    Sport and Fitness in K-2 develops students’ gross motor and ball skills in a range of sports. Students in Years 3-6 may compete in interschool sport competitions and a variety of gala days. A wide range of sporting opportunities will also become available through to State and National levels through the Christian Schools Sports Association.
