St Francis Catholic College has a comprehensive co-curricular program that encourages involvement, leadership, community spirit, physical engagement, artistic endeavour, teamwork and social justice. 

Our programs affirm students, acknowledge their gifts and talents and cater for the diverse ways in which they learn.

Performing Arts

Our Performing Arts Program aims to enrich students’ lives through an understanding and appreciation of the creation and performance of music, dance and dramatic works.

Active student participation within the performing arts is encouraged by a dedicated team of teaching staff who provide a range of co-curricular performance opportunities.

Several events, performances, and large-scale productions are offered each academic year, and all students with a passion for the arts are welcome to participate.

College Production

Our school production gives students across all year levels an opportunity to perform. Whether they sing, dance, act, play an instrument or like to work backstage, students are encouraged to be part of the production team.

Our major productions have entertained audiences of more than 800 people over three nights. The school production provides a fabulous opportunity for students to showcase their talents.


The College Vocal Ensemble is an integral part of the music department.

Rehearsals are held at lunchtimes during the term and are designed to help grow and support the students’ talents, confidence and social and performance skills.

Throughout the school year, the Vocal Ensemble participates in College performances, school masses and assemblies, community performances, the annual Ensemble Camp and a Christmas Carols Tour.

This array of events means students develop an extensive repertoire, ranging from contemporary pop and rock to classical hymns.

Instrumental Music

The College offers a wider range of private instrumental music lessons in piano, guitar, drums, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone and vocal tuition.

Playing a musical instrument has so many benefits. It improves memory and mathematical ability, refines time management and organisational skills and teaches perseverance.

Students who enrol in private instrumental lessons will also have an opportunity to perform at various College functions, such as school masses, liturgies, assemblies, concerts, and the wider community. The 25-minute classes are held during the school day.

Our annual Music and Awards Evening showcases and rewards exceptional musical talent while recognising and celebrating student improvement.

Community Service

As a vital and vibrant part of the community, St Francis Catholic College seeks to live out its ethos and provide an environment that nurtures and encourages Catholic values. 

The College endeavours to lead students to see that they have a responsibility to the broader community and encourages them to become active, worthwhile, and effective members of society.

With this in mind, community service is expected of our students. They are encouraged to seek opportunities to engage in selfless Christian acts of service in the local and broader community.

Many have achieved recognition for their efforts, including Class of 2023 graduate Ophelia (pictured) who was Moorabool Shire Council's 2024 Young Citizen of the Year.

Ophelia was nominated for her unwavering dedication and tireless community service through St John Ambulance, her commitment to social justice at the College and her contributions to youth development within Moorabool.
