Club and Culture

Every school day from 3.15pm until 5pm Djarragun College runs a Club and Culture program. The purpose of our Club and Culture program is to offer students a balance of activities in areas of sport, fitness, life skills and recreation.

We offer art, home economics, music, cultural dancing, horticulture, information technology and fitness. All our boarders participate in the Club and Culture program and many of our day students stay at school for the extended school day. These students are safely transported home afterwards.
