At CVAS we encourage our students to participate fully in the life of the school. There are many co-curricular activities that extend beyond the classroom.

Rural Fire Service

As a member of the Clarence Valley community, CVAS encourages students to take part in activities that are of benefit to the area. Students in Years 9 and 10 are able to take part in Rural Fire Service training. For more details about the RFS visit

Kokoda Walk

CVAS students had the distinction of being involved in completing the arduous Kokoda Trail during the July Holidays. This sort of experience is one that we are keen to continue and will look at making the walk an ongoing co-curricular opportunity for our students.

Duke of Edinburgh

CVAS is a strong supporter of this prestigious worldwide program for young people. This is very popular in the School and runs on Friday afternoons for students in Years 9-12. Students develop their camping craft and navigation skills essential for the expedition section of the Award, during sport time and then put these skills to the test in two bush walks organised by the school. Students have to pursue three sections of The Award in their own time, Physical Recreation, Skill and Volunteering and they are responsible for logging their own hours online.
