Specialist Learning Programs
Developing a lifelong love of reading and literature is the focus of our library program. Students are exposed to a broad range of texts that they are encouraged to borrow and share with their family at home. Each year, students participate in the Premiers' Reading Challenge through both library sessions and the classroom reading program.
Science and technology learning serves as a means to expand students curiosity and willingness to explore, ask questions about and speculate on the changing world in which they live. Students develop the ability to solve problems, and make informed decisions about current and future applications of science while taking into account the ethical and social implications of decisions. Coding Club, LEGO Lunchtime and Environmental Club are some of the additional opportunities that support the STEM program.
Through Visual Arts, students make and respond using visual arts knowledge, understanding and skills to express themselves and their thinking. Learning in Visual Arts helps students to develop understanding of world cultures and their responsibilities as global citizens. All students have their artworks showcased as part of the annual Art Show in Term 4.
Learning languages develops students understanding about the role of language and culture in communication. Students engage in a range of learning opportunities including singing, dancing, role plays and games, as well as our pen pal program. Each year we have an Indonesian performance visit the school. Indonesian language is used to greet all students each day as part of our morning mini assemblies.
Performing Arts enables students to imagine and participate in the exploration of their worlds, individually and collaboratively. Students use body, gesture, movement and voice to take on roles to explore real and imagined worlds. All students participate in the annual production where they have the opportunity to dazzle the community with their amazing talents in Term 2.
The Health and Physical Education curriculum plays a significant role in building the knowledge, skills and understanding that apply to a range of health, safety and movement contexts. Students are are supported to develop skills that lead to individual and team sports games. Students participate in a range of whole school events such as Athletics Day, swimming program, The Colour Run and Jump Rope for Heart. Students in the senior school participate in inter-school sports.
