Education Beyond the Classroom

At SSA it is our mission to give students access to the knowledge, qualifications, and wider experiences they need to develop their potential and to participate in and make a positive contribution to society.  

We strive for all students to have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences, including those that are outside what is taught in the classroom, for example during lunch, after school and school holidays. It is our intent that, by providing these opportunities, students will develop as: 

  • Respectful and responsible members of society 

  • Happy and successful young people who seek excellence for themselves and others. 

  • Mentally, physically, and socially healthy members of society.
