Extramural activities.

At Montessori Academy and College we believe that extra mural activities form an important role in the holistic curriculum of each child. During the school day children are instructed in a wide range of physical exercise  but this is supplemented by the extra mural activities listed below.

Each child is encouraged to take part in these activities.


At Montessori Academy and College we offer the following extra mural activities:

  • Rock Climbing
