Children have the opportunity to participate in parish based sacramental programs through the school. The Parish Sacramental Coordinator works closely with the school and the school’s Religious Education Coordinator for the Sacraments of Reconciliation (Year 3 students), First Holy Communion (Year 4 Students) and Confirmation (Year 6 students).
Music is offered to all students in Terms 1 and 3 with a qualified Music teacher. Students from Years 3-6 are able to participate in the school choir and take part in Eisteddfods, Sacramental and school Masses and liturgies. The Hume Conservatorium of Music also conducts lessons at the school.
Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of school, local and wider community sporting events. From Year 3, students represent their ‘sporting house’ at the school swimming, cross country and athletics carnival. K-2 students also participate in a Swimsafe program in Term 4.
Our sporting houses are: Blake (Yellow), McCauley (Blue), O’Brien (Red) and Patrick (Green).
Classes will be involved in excursions throughout the year to support the student’s learning. Excursions have included visits to Parliament House, Minnamurra and Fitzroy Falls, the Australian War Memorial, Questacon, National Zoo and Aquarium, Taralga Wildlife Park Goulburn Regional Library and Art Gallery and an annual two night Year 6 camp at Borambola Sport and Rec Centre. Each class also participates in a Park Day at the Adventure Playground at the end of Term 4 to celebrate the year.
