Beyond the Classroom

Music

St Mark’s is well known for the breadth and quality of its Music program. Children are encouraged to learn an instrument through the music tuition program where private tutors come into the school to work with students.

As their music skills develop, they move into the band program and have the opportunity to perform within and beyond the school environment.

Similarly, students are provided with the opportunity to develop their singing skills and become a part of the school choir. Their year together culminates in a Choir Tour where they visit a region close to Mt Barker and entertain various organisations.

Outdoor Education

St Mark’s has an extensive Outdoor Education program which sees our students undertake a camping experience each year. These experiences add to the student’s classroom learning, plus provide opportunities to develop their social skills and emotional wellbeing.

Their skills and wellbeing are also enhanced through a rich excursion program where the learning from the classroom is brought to life through real life experiences.

Social Justice

Developing a Social Justice perspective with our student body is an important goal at St Mark’s. Through our association with local, national and global organisations our students come to a better appreciation of the world around them and how they are called to selflessly serve others. This is Christ at work in our young people as they develop a disposition towards service learning.
