We believe it is important for students to pursue interests to find what they are passionate about. We give them exposure to a range of exciting opportunities that help develop students’ creativity, passion, personal skills, leadership and teamwork.

Performing Arts

Performing Arts is about developing individual creativity, confidence and self-expression and it promotes a sense of wellbeing for our students. It plays such an important part in our educational experience here at Assumption, and we are lucky enough to have specialist teachers whose role is to nurture and guide these gifts and talents. Students have the opportunity to participate in public speaking, choir, music, dance, drama and the school band.


The Assumption School offers a wide range of sporting and physical activities as part of the Personal Development, Health and Physical Education curriculum. Sport plays an important role in a young person’s development. The Assumption School offers many opportunities for  students to participate in sport both within and outside the school. Students can participate in a wide variety of sports including: cricket, soccer, netball, rugby, football and swimming. Through the participation and success at sporting carnivals, students have the opportunity to compete at the following carnivals:

  • Diocesan Carnival
  • NSW CPS - Polding Selection Trials
  • NSW PSSA Championships
  • Australian Schools Championships

Clubs and Enrichment

Students can pursue a range of interests through lunchtime activities such as robotics, gardening club, choir, dance, chess and wellbeing groups. Throughout each year we provide enrichment opportunities at school or that can be accessed at home for students across English, Mathematics and Creative Arts.

Excursions, Camps and Retreats

Our students benefit greatly from school trips where they are able to link their classroom learning with the outside world. These experiences not only lead to deeper understanding, but are also wonderful opportunities for students to develop independence, grow in faith, form strong friendships and make life-long memories.

  • Year 5 Overnight Canberra Excursion: Each year our students from Year 5 undertake an educational tour of the National Capital. Students are given the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational programs with a focus on Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy. Students and teachers enjoy the two days during which they visit the old and the new Parliament Houses, the National War Memorial, Questacon, and other relevant tours.
  • Year 6 Christian Living Camp is held in May at Lake Burrendong. The Year 6 students engage in faith and physical formation activities and form relationships with other schools from around the Diocese. Students develop their critical thinking, collaboration and resilience skills as they participate in activities that require them to support each other through challenging obstacles.
