Lunchtime Activities

Chess Club

Chess Club takes place on a Friday lunchtime. It is an opportunity for new players to come and learn how to play the game and for more experienced players to hone their skills. Running in Term 2 and 3 we have a chess competition for each of the year groups 3-6 where the students get an opportunity to compete in a knock-out, culminating in chess champions from each year level. There is also an active draughts / checkers group. All the students love coming to play, improve their strategies and have fun.

Debating Team

Enthusiastic students attended the debating workshop on Monday. They learned all about the structure of a debate and began preparing for a given case. The manner in which one delivers a speech, including your use of voice and gestures are all an important part of debating.

Students worked in teams discussing the differences between the affirmative and negative sides. The students finished with a line debate and were either on the affirmative or the negative side. They needed to support or rebut the points put forward.

Friendship Room

The Friendship Room is located in the CLC and is open during lunchtime Monday to Friday.  This room is available for all students to use.

Junior Dance Group

Junior Dance group (Foundation to Year 2) is held on Fridays at lunchtime in the hall.  This group is led by Ms Athena Archer - our Foundation Coordinator.

Book Craft & Origami Club

Book Craft runs during Monday lunchtime in the library.  Students will make the best use of recycled and preloved books and turn them into craft work for all to enjoy.
