Hello,

I will be applying for girraween high school for yr 11 and I just want to know how can I tell them what extra curriculars I do in my application since I have done around 30 - 40 extra curriculars. Could someone advice me on how to tell them what I do since I dont have much certification from those activities I do. Thanks in advance!

To be honest I dont think you should mention that you did 40. Saying you do 40 different extra curriculars immediately gives me the impression that you have only done these things for maybe a few hours before moving onto the next one. Focus on maybe 2-5 that you have invested the most time into, work the hardest in/ are the most character building for you.

No one cares if you played basketball, badmington, cricket, soccer, nrl and hockey once. But if you train for one sport 3 times a week, thats way more important to talk about.
