Active, Creative, Engaged
JPC offers a rich and contemporary program of activities to complement the formal Australian school curriculum. We encourage every student to pursue their passions and talents as a central part of a fulfilling life.
All students take part in Physical Education through the curriculum. Our excellent facilities are regularly opened by our PE staff for lunchtime games and sport.
Students are encouraged to represent the College in our sports teams for inter-school competitions. We currently have an active and competitive Netball Club that competes in the weekend competitions. In the past, we have entered Basketball teams in the weekend comps, and are actively pursuing other competitions at the suggestion of students and staff.
Students also have the opportunity to qualify for ACT teams in swimming, cross-country and athletics.
The College respects and celebrates Indigenous cultures as rich and living traditions. Students are invited to lead and take part in an Indigenous Group, through which knowledge is shared across the school community. Indigenous students work with staff to coordinate whole-of-school events marking NAIDOC Week and Sorry Day; as well as other cultural and awareness activities initiated by students.
The College in the Community
The College encourages students to contribute to the local and global community by fundraising and hands-on activities. Our students take the lead in identifying and coordinating initiatives that reflect our ethos of giving back. They are supported by staff who harness the community program to build skills of leadership, innovation and teamwork. Each House also adopts a House Charity each year to allow students to build a deep understanding and engagement in key challenges facing the community.
