Students at Macquarie Fields High School have the opportunity to participate in a large number of co-curricular activities to promote and develop social responsibility, ethics, respect, teamwork and understanding of the needs of others. These activities allow students to maintain a healthy balance between school and the home as well as equipping them for post school life.
A large majority of students at the school regularly participates in various charity initiatives and fundraising events with the major event being the World Vision 40 Hour Famine. Other charities supported include the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, Jeans for Genes, Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Appeal, Movember and The Greatest Shave. Such experiences not only support those in need but promote values of responsibility, respect, social awareness and integrity in the students.
