Other Activities

Participation in a broad range of co-curricular activities helps girls make friends both within their year level and beyond, increases their connection with their School, gives them valuable outlets for their boundless energy and enhances their personal development and enjoyment of life.


Debating beyond the inter-house competition begins at Year 7 with a number of teams being entered in each section of the inter-school competition of the Debaters Association of Victoria.

Social Service

Developing an ethical mind is an important component of a Strathcona education. From practical community service to fundraising and goods collection, girls have the opportunity to work with others in their year level to plan and run events that make a meaningful impact in the lives of others.
