The co-curricular activities are a highlight of schooling here at GMAS. Students can participate in a range of activities.

Listed below are just a few opportunities. We encourage you to contact our Co-Curricular Coordinator for further information by calling (08) 9752 5252.

Debating

2007 saw the launch of a great cultural and scholastic competition of Debating here at GMAS, comprising both of Interschool and Interhouse competition.

A highlight of the School's debating program has been the annual Staff vs Students debate, a skillful yet entertaining competition, bringing together the entire School community and judged by popular acclaim. The inaugural 2007 debate was convincingly won by the Staff, only to have the title wrested from them in a stunning upset by the 2008 student team. The Perpetual Shield donated by Peter May who was Chair of School Council, is currently hanging in the school Multi-Purpose Activity Centre (MAC).

Students at GMAS have the opportunity to compete in the annual Western Australian Debating League Regional Competition in Bunbury. Competition rounds take place fortnightly in Term 2, and GMAS has a strong Novice, Junior and Senior Team.  Debating is an excellent way for students to develop both their public speaking and persuasive skills, whilst considering contemporary issues from various perspectives. 

Performing Arts

Music

Students from Pre-primary to Year 9 are all awarded the opportunity to learn music. All courses are written with the aim of engaging students in a practical appreciation of music in regards to how we utilise and consume it in our everyday lives. Skills are developed through listening, performing, composition, theory and aural activitites. Students in these years experience a wide range of musical styles from classical to contemporary,

Music becomes an elective subject in Year 10, where students study in a contemporary context focusing on film, music, scoring and song writing techniques. The Year 11 and 12 WACE Contemporary Music course invites students to hone skills on their principal instrument in a context of their choice, while classroom theory and analysis, aural skills and historical analysis are contemporary based.

A team of dedicated and talented music tutors provide weekly tuition for the following instruments: Cello, Clarinet, Double Bass, Drums, Electric Bass, Flute, Guitar, Piano, Recorder, Saxaphone, Trombone, Trumpet, Viola, Violin, Voice.

The Year 3 String Program and the Year 5 Band Program are run as scholarships to all students in that year group where they are given the chance to experience the joy of learning an instrument for a semester with free instrument hire.

Georgiana Molloy Anglican School has a number of music ensembles rehearsing weekly. All GMAS music students are invited to join the appropriate group. The groups perform at school concerts, as well as in the community, Perth and in the Bunbury Eisteddfod. We are also exploring dance here at GMAS with the Senior Dance Troupe, combining their work with the orchestra and choir in our end of year Arts Spectacular Show.

Sport

GMAS has an extensive, diverse and challenging co-curricular program across many sports. The focus is firmly on participation and having a go rather than on pure ability. Students of all ages are encouraged to be involved in the local after school and weekend sporting competitions and our distinctive teal and blue uniforms are a familiar sight on the various sporting fields.

At GMAS we offer Swimming, Girls AFL, Soccer, Hockey, Netball, Cricket and Basketball both as an associated extra-curricular option on weekends or after school against local teams and in conjunction with school affiliated competitions on weeknights. During school hours students have an active PE programme and all Junior School students have a morning fitness program. We have Interhouse athletics, cross country and swimming carnivals and compete in local and State Carnivals in Perth for both Junior and Secondary students.

GMAS offers its students the opportunity to be involved in the GMAS Swimming Club. Affiliated with Swimming WA, the club caters to all swimmers of varying abilities aged seven and upwards in the Busselton community and surrounding areas.

Training regularly at the Geographe Leisure Centre in Busselton, they attend swim meets in the region and in Perth.
