The exciting sport program is augmented by lunchtime and after school competitions such as futsal, basketball, netball and badminton.
Students at Glen Eira College participate in a large range of other extra-curricular competitions and challenges. Both academic and sports minded students can choose to take on further challenges such as:
- Maths Challenge Competition
- Australian Mathematics Competition

Students can develop their leadership skills on the Student Representative Council (SRC). The SRC meets every week to discuss special weeks and days which are celebrated at the college, community and school campaigns, fundraising and various issues raised by other students.
Fundraising events are a fun and exciting way to raise money for causes decided by the students. The events are led by a member of the SRC along with the SRC students who are interested in the particular event. Fundraising has included:
- Leukaemia Foundation
- Indigenous Literacy Foundation
- Cancer Council
- Homelessness Prevention (Students donated non perishable foods)
- Berry Street (Students donated presents for the holidays season)
- Forty Hour Famine
Some students from various year levels are initiating other campaigns such as food and clothes for the needy and sponsoring a child in Africa. It is a great opportunity to get involved in helping to promote, take part, and even initiate other campaigns.
