Co-Curricular and Support Programs

Chess

The Chess group meets on a regular basis and competitions are held in the school. From time to time the school participates in inter-school tournaments.

Enviro Club

Each week a group of dedicated children are involved in observation, monitoring and planning for the reduction of rubbish around our school. The children also participate in many sustainability projects including earth hour, water usage projects and establishing sustainable gardens.

Gardening Club

A Gardening Club meets weekly planting and propagating plants for the school Fete and the beautification of the grounds. The Gardening Club also helps look after the school’s gardens through weeding, trimming and general maintenance.

Robotics

For our more techno savvy students opportunity is provided to join the robotics club. During their weekly lunch meeting the students learn to design experiment with mechanical devices in order to get the ‘robots’ to follow instructions.

National School Chaplaincy & Student Welfare Program (NSCSW)

As part of our involvement with the NSCSW program we are able to provide a number of support programs to our students and their families. These include:

MSSD (More Support for Students with Disabilities), Grade Parent program, Grade Breakfasts, Student Learning Journeys, Gripleadership, Peer and learning support, Student Council, Fabic (Family Support Unit), Indigenous Welfare and Safety Program, Seasons of Growth, Restorative Justice, Bounce Back, Kids Connexion, Situations of Grief, Making Jesus Real and weekly student welfare meetings.

Families wishing not to have their children involved in any of the school chaplaincy programs should direct their requests to the school principal.

If parents wish to have their child meet with the school chaplain please contact their class teacher as soon as possible.

As always, if parents have a concern with the program they should contact the principal immediately.

A review of the program is held as part of the P&F’s December meeting each year. All parents are welcome to attend. Further informaction can be obtain from the National School Chaplaincy & Student Welfare Program website.
