As a part of our commitment to a holistic education, each year our staff lead a variety of co-curricular activities for our K-6 students to broaden their experiences which aims to develop the whole child at St Gregory’s College.

When an activity is being introduced by a staff member, this will be communicated to the school community and students will be able to sign up for this club or activity. Some of the activities that the staff run each year are:

  • Art Club
  • Instrumental Tuition and Band
  • Choir - Junior and Senior
  • Mini Marists
  • IPSSO Training/Sport 3-6
  • Student Representative Council (SRC)
  • House Sport
  • Lego Club
  • Nature Club
  • Book Club
  • Public Speaking
  • Dance Troupe
  • Social Skills
  • Show Team

Our students also have the opportunity to participate in the Junior School Instrumental Program which is managed by the College Music Department.

Student Leadership in the Junior School

In K–6, students are encouraged to become responsible leaders and positive role models, with class leadership roles shared to ensure an inclusive culture.

Our Year 6 students have the opportunity to take on more complex leadership roles. These include Junior School Captains, Marist Missionary Leader or House Captains. All our Year 6 students see themselves as leaders as they take the opportunities provided in the aim to fulfil our College motto; ‘you will reap what you sow’.

Sporting Pathways

St Gregory's Junior School provides every student with the opportunity to participate in sport and to enjoy the benefits of physical activity and team sports.

As an Independent Primary School, the Junior School enters teams into the Independent Primary Schools Sports Organisation (IPSSO) competition each year. This competition takes place against local Independent Schools on a Wednesday in the Macarthur region. The representative pathways for the Junior School students are through Catholic School NSW for Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics.


Junior School

The Junior School Choir is led by Mrs Limbrey and has weekly rehearsals.

The College has a Music Instrumental Program available for students in Years 3 to 6 (or younger experienced students who have played an instrument for at least a few years).

We provide music tuition for a variety of instruments:

  • Flute
  • Clarinet
  • Saxophone
  • Trumpet
  • Trombone
  • Keyboard/Piano
  • Guitar
  • Vocals

There is a cost associated with tuition lessons. More information can be found on this document or email the instrumental coordinator Ms Kathryn Wray via email

Tuition classes generally occur during lunch breaks or after school but can at times take place during class time.


Our camp program starts from Year 3 through to Year 6 where our students really have a lot of fun with their friends, our staff and learn a lot about self-discovery, leadership and independence in doing so.

Excursions are a prominent feature of the College Calendar with classes being exposed to both external excursions with their class and also incursions at the Junior School throughout the year.



Our College has two very important transition programs that we run to help our students with incoming change.

The first is our Kindergarten Transition program that starts in Term 4 of the year prior to school. Our incoming Kindergarten students have a series of Transition afternoons with our teachers and their peers prior to a half-day Orientation Day in Term 4. These experiences help with the transition from Pre-School into Primary School and the feedback we have gained from current families is very strong around this. This program aims to ensure that your child is ready for school and relieves potential anxieties about starting school.

Year 7/High School Transition

Our second Transition Program is the preparation of Year 6 students for High School. This program is for both boys and girls as they prepare for the secondary setting. All students will transition with various experiences, lessons, observations and excursions as they prepare for their following year of formal education.
