At St James you will have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of extra curricular activities. Many of our children in years 3 to 6 take advantage of our instrumental music programme. Outside agencies run coaching clinics before and afterschool for tennis (Remar) and chess (Chess Mates) and throughout the year visiting groups such as Brisbane Roar Soccer, Brisbane Lions AFL, Rookies to Reds and Qld Cricket introduce the sports to the children through their school programmes.
St James students also have the opportunity to participate in external competitions including the International Competitions and Assessments for School (ICAS), BEBRAS Computational Thinking Challenge and the STEM Video Game Challenge throughout the year.
The children of St James have been very successful in the Tournament of the Minds competition, winning the Spirit Award and have recently won the Most Entertaining Film at the Can Film Competition for Excellence in Language Learning.
