PROGRAMS

The Programs we offer as a school are

BREAKFAST CLUB

As a school, it is so important that children start their day having had a good breakfast. This helps set them up for a successful day of learning. Along with providing a healthy breakfast for our students, this programme also provides opportunities for students to become ‘Breaky Club Helpers.’ This is encouraged as we believe such experiences for our students will assist in their character development.

EACH HEALTH PROGRAMS

eg: Crunch and Munch Awesome Lunch

Crunch & Munch an Awesome Lunch a positive food culture, increase knowledge of healthy foods and discourage packaged foods high in fat, salt and sugar.

HOMEWORK CLUB

Term 2+ (Thursdays 3:10pm)

We regularly hear concerns from parents about getting their child to do their homework and the grief it can cause families. We are wishing to work with families and help support children develop sound habits that will sustain them as they grow older.Good habits need to be practiced and a range of skills need to be evident so that children can eventually do it by themselves. Time management, organisation, concentration and self-responsibility are habits that need to be established. Self-discipline is a key life skill that can only be learned in the way of doing.

WOORI WALLABIES PLAYGROUP

Tuesdays 1:30pm-3:00pm

This program aims to provide quality play opportunities at a critical time in a child’s development. These opportunities foster children’s language development, develop motor skills, expose children to sensory experiences and enhance social skills. It also provides families with opportunities to establish friendships and long term social support networks and increase parenting capacity and confidence.
