Girls' Activities (Years 5 to 8)


Heathgrove's Club for girls include extracurricular activities for school-age girls from Year 5 to Year 8. These programs are run by volunteers (university students and young professional women) who also serve as role models and mentors. Activities are held fortnightly on a Saturday afternoon (3-6 pm). A four day summer camp is also offered to complement these activities.


Youth Activities

In order to aid the personal development of the girls, Heathgrove's activities also include informal mentoring by tutors. Tutoring helps the girls to work on personal goals in a relaxed and safe environment.

Club staff members are also available to meet with parents regarding their daughter's participation and progress.

Club activities include fortnightly activities during school term and two holiday camps during the year. Club activities each term include: outdoor/active games, crafts and/or cooking, volunteering and local outings.


CLUB56

M & D Camp

Club56 is a fortnightly extra-curricular activity which fosters the human and personal development of girls in years 5 & 6. The activities vary in nature but always include an element of character formation and at least once a term, community work. More than an ordinary youth group, Heathgrove offers a holistic approach to the use of time outside school. We work with parents in the job of forming and raising their girls especially in three areas:

  1. Human virtues- helping girls to take study seriously; to want to do things well out of a sense of mission to serve and help others; to learn to use their freedom (use of time, maturity, etc), to be honest, sincere and upfront; to be cheerful and resilient and many more.
  2. In their relationship with others – by being a good friend, a daughter, a sister, etc.
  3. In relationship with God- Progressively teaching them to pray and have a personal relationship with God. For Catholics- To learn to value and love confession and spiritual direction.

For more information on our character development approach, please feel free to download our mentoring card.

The club coordinator for club56 is Maria Jose Peralta. She can be contacted on club56@heathgrove.org.au with any comments, concerns and/or suggestions.

Club Registrations are now paperless. If your daughter hasn't attended club56 before, please fill out this form.

At Heathgrove, we try hard to make our activities and camps affordable. Everything is run on a not-for-profit basis. As well as this, Heathgrove itself is a charitable organisation (Heathgrove Study Centre Building Fund) and a registered Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR). However, there are still many expenses associated with running the Club activities, and these expenses are covered by the activity fees.
