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 careers. Students are encouraged to participate in Co-Curricular activities because it helps them learn about themselves and others, and 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.
Alkimos Baptist College offers an extensive range of sports to be involved in that cater to all interests.
These can include:
- Ultimate Frisbee
- Swimming Carnival
- Cross Country Carnival
- Athletics Carnival
All sports are facilitated and coordinated by our teaching staff. Without their commitment, these sports would not be available.
The College provides a range of Camps, including local camps and international Trips.
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, do 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!
The College looks to organise a Ski trip for students in Years 10, 11 and 12. This is an optional camp designed to give students a fantastic experience on the ski slopes 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 studying Marine and Maritime Studies Year 11 and 12. A 7-day camp during the July Holidays, this experience 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.
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 outside of the school environment. It is a time when students and teachers can interact away from textbooks.
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.
