Calvin Christian School has a variety of Co-curricular activities that enhance the school experience for our students.
In addition to the comprehensive Physical Education program that is a part of the curriculum, Calvin is committed to providing students with the opportunity to develop their sporting abilities. We are actively involved in sporting competitions and carnivals. Calvin is a member of the Sports Association of Tasmanian Independent Schools (SATIS), with students competing in swimming, cross country and athletics carnivals. The school also fields teams in rosters and competes as a club in a wide variety of sports including soccer, basketball, yachting, and triathlon.
Calvin’s community art exhibition celebrates the richly diverse talents of local Tasmanian artists. The Masterpiece Exhibition is a community initiative of the school. The exhibition is seen as a wonderful way to express our celebration of life whilst reflecting on the deeper matters of meaning and truth, identity and purpose, and life and hope.
Art in the Kingston Community
Calvin partners with Kingborough Council and the Dutch Australia Society to host the Abel Tasman Art Prize each year. The winner of the prize travels to the region of Grootegast in the Netherlands on an artistic cultural exchange, with visits to some of the great galleries of European art in Amsterdam. Students in Years 11 and 12 at schools and colleges throughout Tasmania may enter works from a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, photography and printmaking. Artists interested in exhibiting are invited to register their interest by contacting us.
At Calvin Christian School we have opportunities for more senior students to travel overseas for cultural and school exchange. In the past students have visited the Netherlands, Germany, France, Singapore and Fiji.
Calvin Christian School has a sister school relationship with Goamarus college in the Netherlands. Each year students visit from each school to develop cultural understanding and educational development. The students who study German at Calvin have opportunities to develop their language skills.
Fiji Mission Trip
Since 2008, Calvin Christian School has been involved in two-week mission trips to Fiji. The primary purpose of the trip is to provide school and medical supplies to needy villages and remote medical centres. Students also run evangelistic and educational programs in schools and villages.
