St Paul Apostle NORTH school provides a number of extra curricular activities and additional student services. St Paul Apostle NORTH students also participate in local community activities.
Swimming tuition is provided as a part of the Prep to 6 curriculum and is compulsory for all students. Swimming lessons are conducted by qualified swimming instructors at the Oasis Swimming Centre at Dandenong, with students receiving eight lessons over a concentrated period.
The Choir is open to students in Grades 3-6. We’ve enjoyed much success with previous performances at Federation Square, Melbourne Museum, nursing homes, Fountain Gate Shopping Centre, Endeavour Hills Shopping Centre, Dandenong Town Hall, Alexander Theatre and even on the Channel Nine – ‘Today Show!’.

Year 5 and 6 students are involved in an annual 3 day camp. The students attend a camp at Mt Evelyn and Sovereign Hill, Ballarat in alternative years. Our camp outcomes relate to developing relationships, friendships, teamwork skills and outdoor adventure activities.
St Paul Apostle NORTH offers the services of a school counsellor. The counsellor is available to work with students, families and staff in a safe and confidential environment supporting issues related to self-esteem, social and behavioural issues, bullying and peer relationships and grief and loss.
Children suffering loss or grief through death or separation are supported through participation in the Seasons program where they journey with companions who have been trained by the Catholic Family Services Program.
The Instrumental program is held on Saturdays. We currently offer lessons in keyboard taught by instrumental teachers.
A whole school Disco is held in the school gym once a year. A great time is had by all!
