Extra Curricular

Rochester Secondary College has a proud history of supporting a range of extra-curricular activities. Our sports and debating teams regularly enjoy success at regional and state level, while our production that is held every two years is an event not to be missed!

Debating
The College has debating teams at Junior, Intermediate and Senior levels that participate in District, Regional and State competitions. Our debating teams have had considerable success in recent years due to the interest generated by students and through the commitment of teachers working with these teams. As a result of our debating teams’ success, individual students have entered competitions such as Rostrum and Lions Youth Speaking Competitions.

This world renowned organisation provides a great opportunity for students to extend their skills in their own chosen field as well as community service, physical recreation and several adventure journeys.
