Co-curricular Activities

At Lauriston, we nurture a culture that embraces individuality and values community. Our extensive co-curricular programs inspire our girls to be curious, courageous and collaborative.

We encourage our students to pursue their interests and challenge them to explore every opportunity available to them.

We believe that music education is key to creativity, collaboration and critical thinking skills.

From individual instrumental lessons to ensembles and choirs, our experienced teachers inspire students from Kindergarten to Year 12 to explore and develop their individual musical abilities across a range of genres.

Our jazz cabarets, musical productions, Friday night cabarets and gala concerts not only foster a strong sense of community and belonging, they also offer our students the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience and to develop skills such as teamwork, courage and self-expression.

Visual Arts is an integral part of our curriculum, the culture and the School community.

We offer a wide range of disciplines, and the quality and depth of work visible in our VCE and IB Annual Art Exhibition can be attributed to our experienced teachers, who nurture passion and inspire each girl to embrace creative experimentation and express her individuality.

Our Lauriston Arts Association supports Artists in Residence each year to enrich the learning of our students.

Our vibrant triennial Arts Festival brings together the work of our talented students, staff and external practising artists in a wonderful celebration of creative self-expression and community.

Drama is an important part of our School culture, creating a strong sense of teamwork and collaboration. Each year our students have the opportunity to be involved in the production of a School musical or play, and students from Kindergarten through to Year 12 are encouraged to participate.

The skills required to create a theatre production – from performing or playing music to designing and making the sets and costumes – create opportunities for each girl to explore different interests and discover their unique talents, both individually and as a team.

Our dedicated and passionate staff support the students in bringing their production ideas to life and create a nurturing and supportive environment that inspires the girls to step outside their comfort zone and discover their real potential.


Our debating program covers a range of speech events, from British Parliamentary competitions to UN Youth conferences. Our students have participated in the Model UN program and have taken stage at the Ainger Award, Plain English Speaking Award and Legacy Speaking Award, among other competitions.

All Junior School and Senior School students actively participate in the annual Debating Association of Victoria’s Interschool Debating competition.

School Clubs

At lunchtime and after school, girls can attend a range of clubs. These clubs are run by students for students, but they also rely on the support and skills of our teachers.

Clubs include: Greenies (an environmental club), Makers (digital fabrication and technology), Pride Club, Youth in Philanthropy and Amnesty International.​

FabLearn Lab

From Kindergarten to Year 12, we offer innovative programs that inspire our students to think creatively and to use digital technologies to develop and commercialise ideas sparked by their own interests and observations of the world.

The FabLearn Lab, our digital fabrication laboratory, encourages students to conceptualise, build and test their ideas.
