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