Extra-curricular activities boost young people’s confidence to interact socially with others; extend their social networks; and provide them with new skills and abilities. Above all, they offer an important space to have fun and relax. Participating in extracurricular activities builds teamwork, communication, relationships, and a sense of belonging, all of which help students to develop socially and be successful in school. Participation in extra-curricular activities demonstrates the importance of community involvement. At Victoria CP School, staff willingly give up their free time to provide extra opportunities for our children as we are strong advocates of the immense benefits of extended learning opportunities and experiences – I am forever grateful for their commitment.
