Beyond the Classroom
Debating and Public Speaking
Debating and public speaking develop student skills in critical and creative thinking, reasoning and persuasion. St Leo’s competes in the Catholic Schools Debating Association (CSDA) competition, as well as a number of other public speaking competitions.
St Leo’s has a strong sporting culture, with our weekly Sport for Life program and tiered opportunities for talented athletes to progress to higher representative levels including national and international. We are also proud of our new partnership with Liverpool FC International Academy as a Skill Development Centre, exclusive to St Leo’s students and our Priority Feeder primary schools.

Our exceptional co-curricular music program includes various band, ensemble and choir programs, and an annual musical or drama production. Additionally, the College offers an impressive 20 co-curricular CAPA Ensembles (free to all St Leo’s students) and our specialist Private Music Tuition Program. See CAPA

- Interactive sessions with Australian Slam Poetry Champion, Luka Lessons
