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.

  • 5/6 Boys

  • Father/son event

 

There has been much research about the importance and significance of the ‘father/son’ relationship. The presence of a positive male figure is powerful for children as they grow and develop themselves into adulthood. This event celebrates the important relationship with guest speakers who focus on relevant issues for the boys and their dads. These event help strengthen the relationship between children and their parents as well as aiming to help children with strategies designed to assist them in dealing with feelings, communication, relationships, self-esteem and building resilience.

  • Anglicare-Peaceful Warriors

 

The program supports boys to develop healthy understandings of masculinity through activity-based workshops. Positive male role models are present with the boys in the group, engaging in conversations and actively participating in workshops and reflections required during the sessions. It has been well established that boys need men in their lives to be able to grow with confidence into manhood. Boys need positive and consistent role models who can provide reference points for learning about adult masculinity.
