Q Co-Curricular Overview


Queenwood’s co-curricular program caters to diverse talents and interests and gives all girls the opportunity to shine outside the classroom.

Participation in organised sports is compulsory and a variety of sporting options are available to girls, including hockey, rowing, soccer, athletics, netball, swimming and water polo. Debating is a popular choice, and regular concerts and exhibitions are held to showcase girls’ work in Drama, Art and Music.

Our extensive community engagement program, with its emphasis on service, contributes to personal development. Activities include active volunteering to promote social justice locally, nationally and internationally.


Queenwood’s co-curricular program reflects core Queenwood values, stretching personal horizons and helping develop leadership and teamwork skills.

There is a wide variety of activities that students are offered. Extra-curricular activities include music, gymnastics, equestrian, double-dutch skipping, tennis, swimming, athletics, debating and a community outreach program.

Co-curricular activities are extensions of the curriculum and include computing, language, art and a range of music ensembles. New students receive applications for extra-curricular activities during the enrolment process.
