In 2022 Gleeson College implemented the Stretch Program. The Stretch Program is an enrichment program that supports high achieving students in extending their abstract thinking, creativity, and curiosity. The program runs after school one night each week and supports student agency as they learn about concepts they are interested in. The students participate in challenges and experience guest presentations. Furthermore, they are also given the opportunity to attend relevant enrichment opportunities outside of school. If you would like more information regarding the Stretch Program, or enrichment/extension opportunities within the College please email the Enrichment and Extension Programs Coordinator - Olivia Keatch (email@example.com)
It is our aim to provide the opportunity for all students to learn a musical instrument. Professional musicians work on the campus and instruct students on as many instruments as possible. Students may choose to learn:
- Guitar / Electric Bass
- Trumpet/ Trombone
If there is a demand for another particular instrument we will endeavour to provide tuition. All lessons depend on adequate numbers of students and the possibility of obtaining suitable teachers. Information will be available in the first week of Term 1, when students will be asked to register their interest.

Saturday Morning Sport
There are many positive benefits that students can obtain from their involvement in physical activity, and we aim to provide all students with the opportunity to participate in a range of sporting activities for both the school or for local community teams. Parental and Old Scholar involvement in coaching and/or management of Saturday Morning sports teams is always welcome and appreciated.
