We are involved in many other activities in the local community through volunteering, performing (music, dance, drama), managing and participating in sporting teams and events, attending youth conferences, work experience, producing public exhibitions (art, fashion, woodwork, metalwork, technology), participating in competitions (Hospitality, Maths, Science, Art, Dance), attending local ceremonies and venues, supporting Daramalan staff and families in times of need and supporting one-off fundraising efforts.

Thank you to students, families, and staff for your ongoing support and contributions towards the many charities and events we support as a school family.
