Physical Education and Sport
All children participate on a weekly basis in a full program of physical activity conducted by Mrs Barb Plant. The students also participate in our own athletics, swimming, cross country and a winter sports program. Students who achieve high results then go on to compete at the district and regional levels in these events.
Students are involved in swimming lessons at the Lakes Aquadome.
The School holds its own Swimming Carnival grade 3 – 6 in Term one
We have a very well resourced Library with a range of reading material for all students to enjoy and develop a love of books.
Mr Jobi Laybourne takes each grade for a specialist art lesson. This allows all students to develop skills, techniques and knowledge through which they can create individual art pieces.
Children are introduced and study the cultures of their own country and other lands

Excursions are arranged at reasonable intervals during the year to enable children to have first-hand contact with a variety of experiences. Parents can expect to be notified, in writing, well in advance of any proposed excursions and should understand that no child can be taken on an excursion unless written permission and authority to take emergency action in case of illness is received from that child’s parent.
