Co-Curricular Program

Melbourne High School is committed to student personal development


Melbourne High School has an extensive co-curricular programme in order to achieve the philosophy of More Than Just Marks. From Year 9, the Program is designed to help students to assimilate into Melbourne High School through meeting students from different year levels with similar interests, and to enable students to broaden their experience at the School.  All of these activities continue through to Year 12 and many groups are run by senior students under teacher supervision.

House Competition

Melbourne High School has a strong House competition which runs throughout the year.  The four Houses, Como (yellow), Forrest (blue), Waterloo (green) and Yarra (red) compete in the Swimming Sports, Athletics event, House Chorals, and Cross Country as well as in minor sports and activities.  Every student in each House is required to participate in Chorals and Cross Country each year.


Minor sports and activities include AFL football, football (soccer), basketball, debating, theatre sports, volleyball, waterpolo and instrumentals.  Competition runs high to see which House will win the Derrimut House (formerly Cockhouse) each year.
