The extra-curricular programs at the College are designed to enhance the school experience for all students, develop confidence, extend skills, uncover hidden talents and discover new friendships. There are numerous clubs and activities run in the College to suit all types of students.
School camps provide opportunities for students to attend camp to develop social skills, increase independence, challenge themselves and enjoy the benefits of an active lifestyle. At CLTC we offer a number of camps in different year levels. The camping program commences in Year 5 and 6. The upper primary school camp enriches and compliments the students’ learning program. In Year 7 students participate in a camp focussed on personal and interpersonal learning with a particular focus on nurturing positive relationships. In Year 8 students attend a camp with a focus on Science to link with the core curriculum. In Year 9 and 10 students are provided with an opportunity to attend a camp in China to visit our sister school in Nanjing as well as a Chinese language camp.
All students across the College attend excursions which enhance classroom learning experiences. Across all areas of the curriculum teachers organise enrichment programs to extend student learning. As part of our partnership with La Trobe University students in all the secondary year levels visit the university to participate in an orientation and familiarisation program. This program is aspirational and reinforces our expectation that students choosing to enrol in VCE are undertaking a pathway to tertiary education. In Year 9 students participate in the ‘City Experience’ program which provides a fantastic opportunity for students to increase their independence as well as learn about the beautiful city of Melbourne.
Students have the opportunity to learn a number of musical instruments as well as receive singing lessons. Theatrical and musical performances occur each semester for all year levels including the primary school concert, mid-year instrumental music concert and band performances.
