Social life

ICMS draws students from all over the world attracted by our reputation as a vibrant social community with incredible student experiences. The diverse student body remains committed to staying connected via formal and informal social activities, both on and off campus. Our Student Experience Coordinators provide various levels of support and encourage you to step outside of your comfort zone, make use of opportunities that come your way and recognise that life rewards action.

SRC organised social activities
Our Student Representative Council (SRC) strives to improve and maintain the quality of student life for our entire student body. Elected by their peers, the SRC acts as an advocate for the student body with the SRC President holding a position on the Academic Senate. The SRC also works with the Student Experience Coordinators to plan and organise a range of social activities, including major events such as our College Icebreaker and themed events such as talent shows, karaoke, cocktail and movie nights.

The SRC also represents students views on academic issues to the College as well as support and represent the body in any possible way. This not only gives students the forum to voice their views, but also gives the College valuable feedback when planning for the future. 

Cultural activities
Our SRC holds special events including Australia Day, Oktoberfest, Thanksgiving and Asian Noodle Market nights. For the classically minded, there are opportunities to attend concerts and plays in Sydney theatres, open-air venues and even the Sydney Opera House.

Our student clubs and associations
There are many associations that you can sign up to straight away and be a part of, such as the Scandinavian Association, Rotaract and Asian Students Association. We also have the Living Water Group run by our Reverend, and offers spiritual understanding and fun.

You can also join the College choir, theatre groups and/or band groups. The choir as well as the band put on special performances for many events such as graduation, welcome ceremonies and themed parties. The theatre group will put on a performance every trimester for the College to attend; they also help with reporting on special sporting events as well as parties.

Community Contribution Scheme
The Community Contribution Scheme has been developed to encourage and acknowledge voluntary participation of our students within ICMS and the local community. The scheme acknowledges the voluntary contributions made by our students, recording their involvement on their academic transcripts at the end of each trimester. Students may choose to donate their time and skills to local charities, fundraising events and community activities.
