The Interschool carnival is held between Kulin, Corrigin, Narembeen, Bruce Rock and Southern Cross, with the venue rotating annually.

District High Schools Country Week
The secondary students sometimes compete in Perth against other District High Schools in sports like football, hockey and netball. This event occurs in the last week of Term 3.

Swimming Lessons
All children from PrePrimary to Years 7 are involved in swimming lessons during Term 4.  These lessons are part of the Physical Education Program and children must attend unless adequate medical evidence is available to direct otherwise. The lessons are carried out every day over a one-week period.

Other Physical Education Activities
Students at Kulin also have an opportunity to play basketball, hockey, netball, cricket, soccer, golf, badminton, squash, tennis, and volleyball. Many also compete in triathlon and cross-country running events.

Assemblies

Assemblies are held approximately every five weeks in the school undercover area. All classes from Kindergarten to Year 10 organise and run an assembly once per year. Assemblies occur on Fridays at 2.30pm. Parents and community members are always welcome.

Socials

The Student Council organises socials during the year. They are usually held at the Freebairn Recreation Centre and a small entrance fee is requested. Only students enrolled at Kulin are permitted to attend, except on occasions when neighbouring schools are invited.

Graduation Dinner and Ball

In order to recognise the conclusion of their schooling at Kulin DHS, Year 10 students are invited to participate in a graduation dinner and ball. This usually occurs at the end of Term 4. Year 10 parents are encouraged to attend meetings to assist in coordinating the event. Whilst only Year 10 students and their families attend the dinner, the whole community are invited to the ball.

Bookclub

This school subscribes to the Scholastic Book Club. Each month, an order form is sent home with the children.

  • Arrow Years 1 – 2
  • Lucky Years 3 – 5
  • Star Years 6 – 10

Selections are made using the order form and returned to school by the due date, with the correct money or cheque made payable to the school. Books usually take 2-3 weeks to arrive. A parent volunteer coordinates this program.
