​​​​St Benedict’s College offers a broad range of co-curricular opportunities to engage students who are interested in Culture. While participation in these experiences is voluntary, students who join a group are expected to make a commitment to rehearsals/meetings and participate fully in the program. There are opportunities for students to go to competitions, festivals and enjoy guest speakers and visiting artists. The co-curricular program is always very popular with a diverse range of students who enjoy working with their teachers and each other in a relaxed and friendly environment.  2024 Culture Handbook.pdf
