Junior School Rotations

This program is aimed at providing students from Foundation to Grade 2 the opportunity to explore a variety of skills and concepts through fun and collaborative learning experiences. We value student voice and use the students ideas and suggestions to plan all rotations. It is a great opportunity for students to work collaboratively and learn new skills while getting to know other students and teachers in the Junior School. Some of the activities include: cooking, coding, paper crafts, obstacle course, outdoor games and drawing just to name a few. 

Investigate - Create - Express

This exciting program offers students from Years 3 to 6 a range of activities that extends the students’ learning and furthers their knowledge and skills in new or existing areas of interest and passion. All students have had the opportunity to contribute ideas for activities through their Student Representative Council and we aim to cater for many of the most popular suggestions. 


Thanks to our talented staff, willing family members and community volunteers some of the wide range of activities that have been offered have been woodwork, cooking, crafts such as quilting, applique, hama beads, friendship bands, knitting, photography, gardening, book club, flight, comic drawing, painting, song and Auslan, drama and writing, yoga, pottery, recycled art, henna designs, chess, rock band, egyptology, pinata, pattern making and soft toys.
