The Year 7-9 Camp provides a great range of opportunities for team-building, growing self-confidence, improving resilience and enhancing peer relationships through challenging activities and problem solving. Students and teachers also enjoy the opportunity to get to know each other a little better.
Year 7-9 Camps are based at different Sunshine Coast locations and rotate each year. These sites have included; Elanda Point , Mapleton, Luther Heights and Ewen Maddock Dam . Students stay over for 2 nights/3 days with transport to camp, meals and accommodation (tents or cabins) provided.
Each year students participate in a fantastic variety of outdoor challenges including;
G.R.I.T. stands for Generosity, Resilience, Integrity, Thoughtfulness. The program which is part of the College curriculum involves bush walking, abseiling, hiking, camping, service projects, learning new skills and 'Urban Days' in Brisbane. Our Year 9 students learn to stretch, develop and grow their ability to adapt, create and persevere.
Students in Year 10 complete their work experience placement whilst other students in secondary are on their camps. This opportunity gives students a valuable insight into a workplace and a taste for their potential career preferences.
In the senior years of Secondary, students are given the opportunity to travel within Australia and Overseas to experience new perspectives and places.
Vanuatu Service Trip:
An initiative of the previous Principal, Mr David Rogers, was to establish a Senior Service Trip to a school at Aore in Vanuatu, to work on several projects on the school campus there. Initiatives completed by students on the trips so far have included, a boat restoration, helping with water supply, house restumping, mowing, rust repairs to a school vehicle, painting work, desk construction and kitchen duties. Many days of hot, hard work are broken up by some fun activities, swimming and visiting local icons. The trips have provided a valuable opportunity for the students to serve others and to appreciate a broader perspective of the world.
Students and staff travel to Avondale College of Higher Education in NSW where they are able to learn more about tertiary studies at this institution which is affiliated with Noosa Christian College. Many of our graduating students have opted to study at Avondale and this visit gives them exposure to campus life, the selection of academic courses available and to meet with Avondale lecturers.
Following a weekend at Avondale, the group then travel further south to Sydney where they visit several iconic locations including Sydney Harbour, Sydney Aquarium and Taronga Park Zoo.
Secondary students of Noosa Christian College have presented three school musicals: “Olivia” in 2011, “Smithy” in 2013 and "The Three Musketeers" in 2016. Students and staff pulled together to create three very memorable and successful shows with many volunteer-hours by faithful friends and family of the College.
M.A.D. AND More Night
‘M.A.D. and More’ is an evening showcase in which students are given the opportunity to perform and display their work to an audience of parents and visitors to Noosa Christian College.
In 2010, Noosa Christian College hosted the first ‘Music, Art and Drama (M.A.D.)’ in the Secondary. The concept was quickly embraced by the primary and secondary campuses and has since become a regular feature in the College calendar. The event was then renamed to ‘M.A.D. and More’ to include other areas of study such as workshops, interactive displays, drama and musical items that are representative of the learning students have engaged in during the year.
Music is offered in Secondary as an elective subject. Private Music Tuition is also available for students whilst on campus during the week. Noosa Christian College is pleased to offer lessons with local Music Teachers on request.
