Student Club

The Student House Committee provides opportunities for undergraduate students to become involved in the social, intellectual, sporting, cultural, liturgical, community and leadership events. 

The House Committee is responsible for planning all the undergraduate student activities and for liaising with other colleges. House Committee manages the business of the Student Club. The students on the committee are elected each year by all Sancta students to fulfil specific roles.

There are many opportunities to develop strong leadership skills through this committee and the various representative roles.
