Endless club opportunities
We are proud to provide the opportunity to discover new interests, develop skills and talents, and build positive relationships with others. Held at lunchtime and after school these clubs are run by students for students, with the support and skills of the Lauriston teachers. These clubs help build student engagement across the school, as well as improving social skills and inclusion for all students.
The current clubs on offer can be read in further detail below and show the diversity of opportunities available to students.
Model United NationsLauriston supports an active and growing Model United Nations, also known as Model UN, group. Our goal is to provide a better understanding of the inner workings of the UN as students build skills in diplomacy and compromise.
Typically, students will discuss and debate important world social, economic, or political issues while taking the part of delegates to the United Nations and simulating UN committees. There is the opportunity to participate in external workshops, State, National and even international conferences. Model UN builds confidence and leadership as well as diplomatic skills.
Amnesty International Support Group
The School has an active and committed Amnesty International support group. Girls from all year levels meet to discuss important local and global issues in a safe and welcoming environment, and they raise awareness through fundraising events and benefits. New members are welcome to join the group at any point in the year.
Coding Club is a student-led initiative introduced in 2021. This club aims to empower women in computer science by introducing girls to the world of coding and computer science. We are passionate about giving our fellow female schoolmates the chance to participate in the area and helping our girls be comfortable around programming. We hope that through coding club, more girls can potentially find a new area of interest, establish friendships with like-minded people, or perhaps have a broader range of choice of what they want to pursue after high school.
Greenies – Lauriston Environmental GroupStudents can get involved in environmental programs that focus on initiatives including recycling paper and plastics, conserving water, and reducing plastic bag usage. ‘Greenies’ also supports wildlife conservation projects, working across year levels to educate the school community about caring for the environment.

Laurie drivers Students who join this group learn skills in backstage management, lighting, and sound and are involved in assemblies, concerts, and school productions.
Pride ClubPride Club is committed to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for members of the LGBTQ+ community and their allies. We seek to celebrate the broad spectrum of identities that our school community encompasses.
