Extracurricular Activities - Introduction

Extracurricular Activities

Children have opportunities to participate in a wide range of interschool sports, sport teams, music tuition, choir, dance group, enviro group, school orchestra, ukulele and kapa haka, as well as shorter term clubs like the winter chess, knitting and dance mat typing clubs. Students also help out at school as student leaders.
Details of all these activities can be found in our school newsletters, in direct communication from the program coordinators and via this website.

The children have opportunities to participate in a School Musical Production and an Art Exhibition (alternate years), Northern Bay Performing Arts Festival, a Choir Festival and special school-wide programs such as Science Fairs, book parades and cultural festivals.

Our School Library

Our school library is open each day at lunchtime. Our student librarians run the library during this time and are available to assist other children with book selection. Lunchtime story sessions may also be held in the library. and the amphitheatre makes a perfect venue for this, allowing the children to relax and enjoy great stories in warm, bright comfortable surroundings.

Book Week is held every year, with special activities to celebrate the love of books - such as the book parade and photo competition.

Dance Group

During the year Mrs Grayson, our dance teacher, works with small groups of children who are enthusiastic about dance and willing to commit to practice every week.

Each term new opportunities will be offered to different levels of the school. Mrs Grayson gets a lot of response to these groups and all children are welcome, but they need to be keen and committed to turn up regularly to practices. Interested students can see Mrs Grayson or listen for announcements at the beginning of each term.
