Activities

At St Dominics Newcastle, a Curro Select school, learners have a wide variety of activities from which to choose as part of the school fees. From school sports and Curro Create programmes, to value-added programmes, our learners can gain 21st-century skills in nearly any field they choose.

 

School activities

As a Curro Select school, we believe that participation in school sports and cultural activities plays an important role in promoting health, team-awareness, discipline and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. As our school has a strong school sports performance record, we offer a wide variety of activities, including specialised activities such as open-water swimming, as part of our school fees. Many of our activities are aimed at developing 21st-century skills.

Curro Create

We offer two Curro Create programmes aimed at helping learners develop their creative talents to their full potential. Curro Arts Superhero (CAS) is an internal creative mentorship platform with a grading element, where learners are encouraged to discover, develop and display their inherent 21st-century skills and creative talents. As a Curro Select school learners can also participate in the annual Curro Create National Youth Theatre Festival, for which schools enter a one-act play in any genre and official language. The winning plays are chosen through a series of adjudications by world-class theatre-makers, who closely mentor learners throughout the process.
