Cabra students are invited to get involved in extra-curricular activities, to enhance their skills, friendships and overall wellbeing. The list of options is extensive and includes activities linked to sport, music, arts, philosophy, language, photography, science and maths.
The more involved in the college students become, the more opportunities they will have to meet others and make new friends. There is an incredibly broad range of activities available at Cabra which can enrich your time at the college and make it more enjoyable.
Student Leadership is an integral part of the Cabra community and provides formal opportunities for students’ voices to be heard, enabling them to participate in shaping the community to which they belong. It celebrates the gifts, talents and contributions of students as they serve the school community.

We offer a diverse range of musical experiences for students of all year levels, abilities and interests. Learning an instrument and participating in ensembles enables students to develop skills on their chosen instrument(s)/voice from specialist tutors and directors, whilst further developing skills such as organisation, creativity and self-confidence. The co-curricular music program provides an opportunity to meet other students who have similar musical interests and participate in college performances, competitions and trips. From ensembles and choirs, to whole school musicals, students are encouraged to develop their artistic abilities in a variety of settings.

Camps and Trips

These experiences are often some of the most memorable of their school days, and serve to deepen and extend their physical, social, emotional and spiritual selves.
