Senior Science Club
Science Club is coordinated and run by a dedicated group of committee members. During a few lunchtimes each term Science Ambassadors put on some fun scientific experiments to help students explore the topics they cover in class. Science club members also participate in Science Week, Science Expo and a number of other extra-curricular activities.
Students from Prep to Year 12 are able to participate in school-based Chess. Students from Year 7 to 12 also represent Saint Stephen’s College at the Associated Private Schools (APS) Inter-school chess competitions throughout the year.
Recycling and Ecomarines Club
Students in Years 4 to 6 are able to participate in the Recycling and Ecomarines Club. The club promotes recycling and sustainability initiatives within the school, organise environmentally-focused events and participate in conservation programs.
Debating opens students up to academically and socially challenging issues and allows them to develop logical, and persuasive arguments, often making them think about issues from a new perspective.
Students in Years 7 to 12 have the opportunity to participate in debating via the College’s Inter-house Debating Competition as well as the Gold Coast Secondary Schools Debating Association Competition.
