Waverley has a tradition of setting goals for its students and helping them to strive for excellence, whether it is in the academic or sporting spheres. We encourage and offer opportunities to our students, at all levels of ability, to explore and fulfil their maximum potential.
Our popular Co-curricular Program includes collaborative experiences that complement learning in the classroom so that students can develop their skills and pursue their passions and talents. If a student is gifted in any sport or activity he is expected to share and develop that talent within and for the College.
The Co-Curricular Program at Waverley Comprises:
- Co-Curricular Sport
- Co-Curricular Culture
- Outdoor Learning
Students in the Senior School can participate in either a Co-curricular Sport or Co-curricular Culture activity each summer and winter. Students in the Junior School must participate in one Co-curricular Sport activity each summer and winter.
We are a proud member of the Combined Associated Schools (CAS) of New South Wales, NSW Combined Independent Schools Sports Council (CIS), and Independent Primary School Heads of Australia (IPSHA) Sport.
We believe that cultural pursuits assist to develop creativity, confidence, expression, cognitive dimension and communication skills.
Senior School students can participate in either a Sport or Culture Co-curricular activity each summer and winter.
Lots of choices are offered with students having valuable opportunities to perform in public arenas and compete against other Colleges as part of a team or individually.
Our celebrated Outdoor Learning Programs include the historic Waverley College Cadet Unit which recently formed a new partnership with St Catherine’s School. Cadets attend weekly parades, training, and important ceremonial occasions.
Waverley offers the Duke of Edinburgh Award providing students with opportunities to explore their potential as they commit to regular participation in skill development, physical activity and service.
In Years 5 to 10, all students attend several annual outdoor education camps which deliver social and developmental experiences, and rich opportunities for students to grow in tenacity, responsibility and character in an outdoor environment.
