Project Active, Hillbrook’s co-curricular activity program, provides plenty of opportunities for students to pursue new interests and hobbies and to mix with students from all year levels.
The benefits of regular activity are well documented – an increased sense of belonging and achievement, increased physical and mental ability and a better self-image. Project Active is compulsory for students in Years 7, 8 and 9 and encourages development of specific skills. Most activities occur before or after school and some take place on weekends.
“Learning is finding out what you already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, teachers.” Richard Bach
