At Oxley, our commitment to learning in breadth recognises that activities beyond the classroom are very much a part of our conscious programme of learning. Abundant opportunities exist for students to explore their gifts in cultural, sporting, community service and outdoor activities. As well as acquiring particular skills, students test and develop their sense of self, their commitment to a group exercise and teamwork in all its complexity.
Some of these activities are compulsory others are a matter of choice. All students are encouraged to explore these offerings and to find something that suits their abilities and interests.
The College environment currently supports various opportunities in Music, Inter-House Competitions including Poetry, Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics, Debating, Public Speaking, Outdoor Education, Sport and Drama. Some of these activities occur during the school day and others after school. Many Oxley students participate externally in both sporting and non-sporting competitions in addition to the opportunities available at Oxley College.
