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.
