As well as the wide range of Academic Curriculum offered at WestMAC there is also an extensive extra-curricular program that students can choose to become involved in.

It is through these opportunities that students can develop new friendship groups, become involved in other areas of interest and develop lifelong learning skills that well prepare them for their future endeavours.
