The DIVAS program aims to develop the qualities of Dedication, Initiative, Values, Active participation and Strength through a range of varied and engaging activities especially for our female students.
The program provides a safe, collaborative, ever-changing and rich network of friends and mentors through which girls can strive to fulfil their potential as students, women and citizens.

DIVAS activities are available all year. However, students are not required to commit to the season; girls are encouraged to attend any and all activities that interest them.
For the upcoming year, DIVAS aim to engage as many girls as possible across a range of activities.
Our first event for 2018 was a colour run and slip’n’slide, attended by over 70 girls. Further activities won’t be held until later in Term 2 as many girls are involved with the College musical. Activities for the year can include movie visits, picnics, fundraising and will be well advertised to girls within the College community through notices, newsletter, whole school assemblies and posters.
An event which remains a highlight for the year is the Slumber Party which will run in Term 4. This event attracts more than 120 girls and is a wonderful way for the DIVAS year to end.
Nothing specific required
Permission letters for each individual activity will be available from 3 weeks prior to the event. Information will be available via Parent Lounge, the official Facebook page and the Downlands App.
Dependant on activity
Costs vary for each activity. Students who participate pay only for the events they attend. Our aim is to provide events at minimal cost for students.
Students who participate in the DIVAS program are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the College Co-Curricular Code of Conduct.
