Toorak students are encouraged to embrace all co-curricular activities in tandem with their high quality education, as an opportunity to expand their experiences, further develop existing skills and find new passions. We know that our students feel a strong sense of community and belonging when they are engaged in all aspects of school life, particularly across Sport, Music, Performing & Visual Arts and Outdoor programs. With our state-of-the-art campus facilities, integrated academic and co-curricular timetable and the seamless experience of booking co-curricular activities through our online platform SOCS, there is no limit for our students to achieve their dreams.

Sport

With a proud and rich history of sporting success at Toorak College, participating in sport has always been an integral part of our School culture. With more than 27 sports on offer, we pride ourselves on providing the best environment where our girls not only feel valued and empowered playing sport but thrive in it too. We are in a unique position to offer specialised sports that girls might not otherwise be exposed to elsewhere, including diving, equestrian, rowing, sailing, aerobics and snow sports.

Our Senior School girls participate in the Girls Sport Victoria (GSV) program. Toorak College is a foundation member of Girls Sport Victoria (GSV) Sporting Association, the leading provider of sport to independent girls’ schools. Junior School students participate in School Sport Victoria competitions.

Music

We believe that music is an integral part of education and of life. Music participation fosters creativity, collaboration and improves cognitive function. Music education at Toorak College creates a strong sense of community, and encourages the pursuit of excellence, with no divide between the Junior School and Senior School. It is about giving students a chance for their creativity to shine and develop their identities as individuals. With ample choice in our Music program, from ensembles and groups to individual instrumental lessons, our students can be immersed in a harmonious atmosphere.

Performing Arts

Students are guided by expert teachers to achieve a sense of self-expression, self-discovery and displicine. Whether it be dance, drama or musical theatre, students are encouraged to explore their artistic potential without limits. There are many avenues to showcase their talents through Junior School and Senior School productions, dance competitions, theatrical plays and external performances.

Visual Arts

The Arts building is the place where students come to develop their skills and expression through a range of different mediums. Whether it be 2D or 3D art, students are encouraged to explore, discover and then communicate their findings by developing their own artworks.

Toorak College artworks are regularly displayed in competitions and exhibitions including: Top Arts, Designs, Shots and Screens, the Moran Prize, Ilford Photographic Competition, Mornington Art Show and the Archibald and Silk Cut.

Toorak Academy of Performing Arts

In 2019, we launched the Toorak Academy of Performing Arts (TAPA) that prioritises enhancing the technique, skills and passion for performance across Drama, Musical Theatre and Dance. Students can develop skills, technique, confidence and a love of performing while learning from trained industry professionals.

House

The House system at Toorak College provides opportunities for student leadership and friendly competition in a range of sporting and academic activities. House events are an integral part of school life and are joyfully anticipated as students strive to give their best for their House.

Our students experience a world of opportunity and create memories that they will never forget through outdoor education programs. From local camps to international tours, our students build resilience, form worldly perspectives and develop a connection with nature.

The Junior School Outdoor Education experience begins in Year 2 with an overnight stay and by Year 6, students progress to a week-long camp. Students benefit from the socialisation, experience and fun of being ‘on camp’, which builds confidence, communication and collegiate collaboration.

Our Senior School camps focus on enriching and enhancing each girl's learning journey. Our programs emphasise a greater understanding that we are all global citizens and do have responsibilities to the world we live in.
