At Oran Park Anglican College, progress is measured not only by academic success, but also by character, relationships, and preparation for a life of learning beyond school. Our wide range of co-curricular opportunities allow students to develop their talents and skills, gain confidence, build resilience and form friendships across all year levels.

Beyond the classroom, co-curricular activities also complement a students’ academic learning through experiences that value collaboration, communication, organisation, service and leadership.

I want each child to know
that they are valued, have
their own unique skills and
talents which they can safely
explore at the College.
