Encouraging children to grow their skills
At South Coast Baptist College, we encourage our students to share their interests, gifts and passions with the College and the wider community.
Co-curricular programs enable our students to enrich the lives of others while developing their interests outside of the classroom. Our students are actively involved in community service, camps, sports and environmental programs. There are also a variety of special interest extra-curricular programs available to students, including music, choirs, art, computing, gymnastics and chess.
Sports & Carnivals
Participating in interschool sports and competitions allow us to grow our skills and give us the opportunity to enjoy connecting with a wide range of other schools. We seek to encourage our students in their strengths and active challenges so that, no matter what their ability, they feel empowered to join in and give it their all.
Our secondary competitions are extra-curricular, but most primary competitions and carnivals are part of the school program and include children from Years 2 to 6.
We are involved in competitions with the Association of Independent Christian Schools (WACSSA), and with local private primary and secondary schools. This ensures we compete with a variety of schools for different sports, which include athletics, swimming, cricket, beach volleyball, netball, basketball, soccer, Australian Rules Football, hockey, tee ball and cross country.
Our 'out of school' teams also compete in local community competitions with fixtures for weekends and holidays. The Peel Soccer Association, the Rockingham and Districts Netball Association and the Rockingham Basketball Recreation Association all involve our College teams.
In Year 5 at South Coast Baptist College, students participate in an annual ‘sleepover’. This event is fully catered and is designed to enhance students’ learning experiences and the social environment. Two full days of activities are organised for our students.
Year 6 Camp
The Year 6 Camp provides a number of exciting and challenging activities, which students enjoy immensely. These include walks, orienteering courses, archery, flying foxes and rope swings. Students come back from personal challenge camps with increased consideration of their peers and with greater confidence to face challenges that seem difficult at first sight.
Year 6 / 7 Canberra Trip
Limited spaces left for 2019 trip!
In 2019, we are again running a trip for Year 6 and 7 students to Sydney, Bathurst, Canberra and Perisher. The purpose of the trip is for students to grow in maturity, connect with the Australian curriculum and experience the broader world in which we live.

In Canberra, the tour covers venues such as the Australian Institute of Sport, the National Library of Australia, the National Museum of Australia, the Australian War Memorial, the Royal Australian Mint, Parliament House and many more.
The trip will run from Friday 23 August to Friday 30 August 2019. For a comprehensive itinerary (including cost estimates and timetable), any questions, please see Year 6 teacher Mr Jon Lituri.

Our gymnastics program is run for students in Year 1 - 6 as part of their sports specialisation, giving every student the opportunity to increase strength flexibility, cardiovascular fitness and help to improve posture, balance, coordination and spatial awareness.
Students can choose to extend their skills after school as well if they wish, with the gymnastics squad holding after school training sessions to suit various ability and commitment levels.
The college currently has five teams competing in the local basketball competition at the Mike Barnett Recreation Centre, Dixon Road, Rockingham. Games are held on Thursday or Friday nights. Most of our teams train on the college courts after school. Teams range from Under 10 through to Under 14 teams. Basketball is open to both girls and boys. The summer season starts in October and continues through to April, and then the winter season is May through to September. For further information, please inquire with your classroom teacher.
