Extracurricular

In addition to the academic program, all students can participate in extracurricular enrichment and extension options at breaks or after school.

Musical groups

Students can participate in a number of musical groups, including choirs, bands and ensembles. The College produces a musical every second year, and all Year 5 to 12 students can audition for roles or act as backstage support.

Sporting teams

Club sports play an important role in many of our students’ lives. Our goal is to provide a sporting program that complements this through skills development, while giving students the opportunity to play and bond as a team by representing Prince of Peace in selected competitions. Prince of Peace is a founding member of NISSA (Northside Independent Schools Sporting Association). Through NISSA, students from Years 4-10 play sport against other private schools on the north side of Brisbane. Sports include: Tee Ball, Basketball, Futsal, Netball, Soccer and Touch Football. Students in Years 7-10 participate in the NISSA competition during school hours on a weekly basis.

Chess Club (Y2-12
Chess is an engaging activity that helps develop students’ critical thinking skills. Evidence shows that chess improves problem solving, decision making and lateral thinking. Chess directly contributes to academic performance by developing skills in focusing, visualising, thinking ahead, weighing options, analysing, thinking abstractly and planning. Students can participate in the lunch-time chess club and house competitions.
