Leadership and Enrichment

 

SRC and Student Leadership

There are various opportunities for our students to develop leadership skills, especially for our upper primary students. In Term 4, we run an intensive leadership program with Year 5’s in preparation for the election of major Year 6 roles: House Captains or a position on the SRC Executive. Other formal roles include Aussie Sports Leader, library monitor and SRC class representative.

Our Student Representative Council consists of delegates from all classes and is led by the SRC Executive members who meet regularly to discuss various student issues before making decisions, fund raise for local, national or global initiatives and organise whole school events to promote a positive school community.

Student Enrichment

Students are provided with a wide range of experiences across varying art forms to develop their skills, interests and creativity, and to communicate their ideas in different ways. There are many opportunities for individual talents and skills to be developed and nurtured.

Examples of such programs include robotics and coding, Lego challenge, Soggy Bottom boat race, Drumbeat workshops that focus on social and emotional resilience, outdoor gardening groups and boys and girls handicrafts, that focus on developing life skills. Academic extension opportunities include math’s relay and Olympiad. Weekly chess club and tournaments are held regularly to develop strategic thinking and build problem solving skills.

Camps and Excursions

Grade 5 and 6 students have the opportunity to attend school camps each year as an integral part of the educational programs to further their learning and develop social skills of independence and responsibility.

Students are given opportunities to attend a variety of excursions. These learning provide students with a chance to connect classroom based learning with real-world applications. These excursions include visiting local sites of historical and cultural significance as well as attending community events and performances. Many local community services engage with our school, with visits from the Fire Brigade, Dental Service, Deloraine Police and many more.
