Students are encouraged to take part in co-curricular activities, choosing from a wide range of sport, performing arts and intellectual projects and groups. During most lunch hours and after school, students choose to participate in chess club meetings, Science Club, Opti-Minds exercises, sports training, choir, public speaking and debating practice.
Private tuition is offered for children keen to advance in tennis, speech and drama and various strands of music. These lessons, from highly qualified teachers, may be held either during the school day or after school. Swimming, skipping, rhythmic and artistic gymnastics, fencing, AusKick (Australian Rules Football) and rugby clinics are also offered - girls and boys are encouraged to participate in all these sports.
Students are withdrawn from class subjects on a rotational basis for Music and Speech and Drama, eg clarinet lessons may be on Wednesdays but at a different time each week so that you do not miss out on the same subject class each week.
Private lessons are arranged with visiting teachers, and fees are payable directly to them.
If you would like to participate in private tuition lessons for these activities please refer to the information and application forms below.
Swimming coaching is available in Terms 1 and 4 and is provided in Stroke Development/Junior Squad and Learn to Swim.
In all classes a swimming cap and goggles are required. Students must be assessed to gain entry into the Junior Squad. This assessment is completed after school by one of our coaches.
Learn to Swim classes may be offered at the school pool or at the Goodna Aquatic Centre. The cost varies depending on the number of lessons undertaken and the method of payment.
If you have any queries or require information on the Junior Swimming program, please contact the Junior School Reception on 07 3454 4547.
