Enrichment Programmes

Orana provides a wide range of activities and opportunities for students to develop new skills and expand their interests. 

Community Service

Secondary School students take part in a community service program aimed at developing a sense of belonging within the students, a sense of responsibility for others and a feeling of reverence for the world. This has been achieved through a partnership-based project with a range of community organisations. Students get to choose which community group they would like to work with, define a project and deliver an outcome. This is an opportunity for students to see their impact directly.

Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Award is a leading structured (non-formal education) youth development program, which is aimed at empowering all young Australians to explore their full potential regardless of their location or circumstance. Any students from Class 9 to 12 are warmly invited to join the Orana Duke of Edinburgh Scheme. Camps are held throughout the year on weekends and during holidays.

The ACT Schools Constitutional Convention

The ACT Schools Constitutional Convention is organised collaboratively by the National Archives of Australia, ACT Legislative Assembly, the ACT Department of Education and Training, Museum of Australian Democracy (Old Parliament House), the Australian Electoral Commission and Elections ACT.  The program is designed specifically for students in Year 11 with an interest in civics, active citizenship and current affairs.
