Extra-curricular

Mitchelton SHS offers a variety of engaging extracurricular activities to suit all students’ interests and needs. The extracurricular program encompasses the following aspects:  

  • Academic Engagement
  • Leadership
  • Sporting
  • Cultural
  • Community
 
Not only does extracurricular activities support engagement, it is also shown to increase school belonging (Blomfield & Barber, 2010) as well as an opportunity for students develop physical, intellectual, social, and emotional competencies and to form supportive relationships with a variety of adults and peers (Larson, Hansen, & Dworkin, 2003) /  

At Mitchelton SHS we believe that participation in extracurricular activities plays an integral role in academic engagement and success with adolescents who participate in extracurricular activities being more likely to be university track students than those who did not participate in any extracurricular activity (Blomfield & Barber, 2010)
