​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Volleyball Excellence Program was founded in 2016 with a starting enrolment of 46, now moving into its 6th year with multiple teams across Middle and Senior years. The College were awarded Overall Champion School of Australia in both Beach and Indoor Volleyball this year, a feat that has never been achieved before.

The program continues to focus on the development and longevity of volleyball within our students. We acknowledge that not every student will make it to the elite level in volleyball but hope that students will experience personal growth and stay involved within the sport though educating them in additional roles such as coaching, refereeing and games analysis.
