Saint Saviour High School is also known for other extracurricular activities such as their annual Walk-a-thon and Song Contest. Song Contest began in the 1960s, and is an annual competition which takes place during the beginning of the school year. Each grade of students; freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors decide on a theme that has to do with their class and then create a song, banners, and props to go with the theme. On Song Contest night, the students present their songs and creations for friends, families, and classmates and are judged by alumni and faculty. The second annual event is the Walk-a-thon. The Walk-a-thon began in the 1990s and is the first official event of the school year. The students are sponsored through donations or pledges that they receive. The goal is for each student to raise $75. The walk takes place at Prospect Park in Brooklyn.
