Excellence programs

Here at Corinda, we accommodate a broad range of talents and skills and encourage students to perform their optimum level whether it be in the academic arena, the arts, on the sporting fields or out in the community volunteering. We believe that every student has the capacity to shine, whatever their strength may be. By nurturing these skills and strengths, we can continue to build a strong and prosperous school community that values diversity and the contributions of all.
