Co-curricular activities are those that are not directly connected to a timetabled subject. Co-curricular activities do not form part of a student’s academic assessment. Co-curricular activities are offered to provide students the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities at Drouin Secondary College.
Examples of co-curricular activities are Interstate Camps, Presentation Ball, Year 11 Formal, Year 12 Valedictory Dinner, Human Powered Vehicles, Debating and Inter-school Sport.
Students with an ARCC score of less than 50 are, by definition, below an acceptable standard for Effort, Behaviour, Organisation and Academic progress. These students cannot participate in co-curricular activities until their ARCC score improves. As soon as their ARCC score is above 50 students will again be allowed to participate in co-curricular activities.

What will Co-curricular points be used for?
- Determining awards for Citizenship and Community Participation.
- Determining eligibility for running for student leadership roles.
- Included in progress reports.
Co-curricular points are displayed on Sentral. Recording of Co-curricular points is coordinated by the ES in charge of excursions and camps. Attendance and participation for the vast majority of co-curricular activities is recorded and will be tracked via excursion forms.
If staff arrange activities for students or are aware of school-related activities that students have participated in, that did not have a permission form, they should give a list of students to the ES in charge of camps and excursions so Co-curricular points can be allocated.
