Co-Curriculum

We are very proud of our Co-Curricular Program on offer at Alkimos Baptist College providing a variety of opportunities for students throughout their school career. Students are encouraged to participate in the Co-Curricular activities because it helps them learn about themselves and others, develop resilience and social and emotional skills that help meet the challenges of life. The Co-Curricular activities also enhance College life for students, staff and the community.

Various activities in sports, drama, music, visual arts and cultural activities are run throughout the calendar year.

Camps

The College provides a range of Camps, including local camps and international Trips.


Local Camps


Our Camp programs consist of two compulsory camps in Year 8 and Year 10. These are both 3 day camps filled with fun, challenges and adventure.

The Year 8 Camp to Rottnest Island is a fun filled 3 day camp. This camp is held in Term 1 where the students get to explore the Island, snorkelling, water sports and learn about the history of the island.

The Year 10 Camp to Dwellingup is held in Term 3. The students go on a 3 day camp where they go tunnelling, canoeing and hiking. Dwellingup camp is the place to be!

 

Ski Trip 

The College looks to organise a Ski trip for students in Year 10, 11 and 12. This is an optional camp designed to give students a fantastic experience on the ski slops of New South Wales. This camp is scheduled for every 2 years.

 

Exmouth Suba Diving Camp

The Exmouth Suba Diving Camp is for students who are studing Marine and Maritime Studies Year 11 and 12. A 7 day camp in the July Holidays, this experiences allows our Year 11 and 12 students the opportunity to gain their open water and advanced open water diving certificates. This camp is run every 2 years. 
 


Social Events

Included in the list of Social Events is the Year 12 Ball. This is held in the first few weeks of Term 1. The Year 10 Formal Dinner is another major event towards the end of the year. These nights are nights to remember!

 

Social Events are held each term. We believe they are an important aspect of College life as it is an opportunity for students to interact with each other in a setting out of the School environment. It is a time where students and teachers can interact away from the text books.

Each term, an event will be determined at the commencement of the term. Students are provided with details on the event during Form Class. Most events are a small cost as they are not compulsory to attend. All events require parental consent. Consent forms are sent home along with the details of the event.
