Beyond the Classroom
At Mancel College, we offer a broad range of activities within our Co-Curricular Program, intentionally designed to strengthen our students’ existing talents and encourage exploration and experience within new areas of interest.
We encourage our students to engage in different activities that assist in developing resilience in the face of change and a positive mindset to undertake new adventures.
During the school day, all students access the off-site school sports program engaging in a variety of activities, including Soccer, Basketball, Cricket, NRL, T–ball, Rugby, Swimming, Beach Volleyball, European Handball, Ultimate Frisbee, Dance & Movement.
Mancel College also collaborates with external partners to offer targeted development and extension programs in selected sports: All Abilities Junior Blaster Program with QLD Cricket, UQ Blues Cricket Academy Program, Primary OZ Kick and AFL Gala Days with AFL Schools and Senior Golf Days with Blind Golf Queensland.
Inter-House Events and Competitions
We allocate all students into one of our Houses – Muller, Robinson, Turnbull – on enrolment. Throughout the year, students engage in inter-house activities and events to strengthen their student identity and sense of belonging through healthy competition and good sportsmanship.
The inter-house sports competitions provide further incentive for student engagement through recognition of student achievement and a sense of celebration – Most Outstanding trophies and house awards are presented at the End of Year Awards Ceremony.
