St John Paul II Catholic College offers a wide-range of activities enabling students to develop leadership skills and talents and develop a greater sense of belonging, involvement and responsibility.
Public speaking and debating
We belong to the Sydney Catholic Schools Public Speaking and Debating Association and our students participate in various competitions hosted by well known community organisations.
The college belongs to several sporting associations including the Metropolitan Catholic Schools Association (MCS for boys), Metropolitan Combined Catholic Schools (MCCS for girls) and the New South Wales Combined Catholic Colleges Sports Association. Our sporting program provides students with the opportunity to represent St John Paul II at inter-school, regional, state and national levels in a wide variety of sports.
The performing arts continue to be a focus at the college with extensive use of the specialist facilities on both campuses. Students have an opportunity to perform in the college’s creative arts evenings and musicals.
