Student Wellbeing Initiatives and Programs

Alternative Lunchtime Activities and Spaces

  • We cater for a range of children’s interests and play preferences by providing alternative lunchtime activities and spaces.
  • Library Children have the opportunity to spend the first 25 minutes in the library to read books.
  • Multi Purpose Room This is available every lunchtime for quiet, sit-down activities eg. drawing, chess, Lego, car mats etc.
  • Lunchtime Code Club It’s not just enough for children to know how to use technology and enjoy it. We want kids to understand how to create with technology- not just interact with it.  Our Lunchtime Code Club is about having fun through creating, learning and exploring with others. We use a range of visual programming tools such as Scratch Jnr, Scratch and Made with Code. Students from every year level are welcome to join.  This is held one lunchtime per week.

Student Representative Council (S.R.C.)

The S.R.C. provides an opportunity to promote student voice and engagement in our school. A male and female representative is elected by the students in each year level except the Prep level where teachers select representatives. Students can only be a class captain once between Prep and Year  5.  In Year 6 the students vote for a school and vice captain as well as sports captains for each house colour.  The SRC meet once a week and strengthen the student voice of the school, suggesting ideas and reporting back to their class.  They also help with school activities, fundraisers and charity events.

Seasons Grief and Loss Program

This peer support program assists students with the loss and grief of a parent separation or a death of a family member, such as a grandparent or friend.  Over the course of a 10 week period students meet once a week for an hour. They are provided with the opportunity to share their thoughts, feelings and experiences and learn new strategies to cope with their own loss and grief.

G.A.T.E.WAYS

G.A.T.E.WAYS is an external educational organisation who offer learning experiences to students who flourish in more complex and challenging learning experiences.  Programs are held in off site venues depending on the purpose of the program.  Some specialised programs are held at places such as the zoo and ACMI while others will be held at primary schools in surrounding suburbs. Some programs are one day events while others may be held over a series of days.

Prior to attending a G.A.T.E.WAYS program students need to be identified by their classroom teachers and other school staff members as being capable of coping with the content, pace and demand of the programs.  

Walking School Bus

Students walk to school with two of our parent volunteers learning important road safety skills along the way.

Our WSB leaves each Wednesday morning at 8:30 form the corner of Moushall Ave and Shaw Street.

We are looking for parent volunteers for 2018, if you would like to or your children would like to join please see Sommer Azzopardi.
