As part of this music rotation we also conduct cooking sessions where children are taught how to cook nutritious, healthy food.
Library is conducted every week for an hour. Students are encouraged to borrow from our well resourced library, with the East Gippsland Library Van attending the school once a fortnight to add more variety.
The Scholastic Bookclub operates in the school. Eight times a year children are given the opportunity to order books from a wide selection at reasonable prices. Children pay for the books at the time of ordering.
Health and Physical Education
In HPE we follow the Bluearth model of lessons. This develops skills and coordination from foundation and continues this development through to grade 6. Part of this program are swimming lessons for all students in term 4.
We have specific skill and game practice when we are approaching a competition i.e. athletics, cross country, swimming and winter sports. We train for teams sports with our cluster of 6 other small schools in the area and these are always fun sessions.
Art is conducted at school by the teachers. Classes usually have 90mins of art a week and this covers all forms of visual art. We recently had an artist in residence at the school, creating 3 dimensional art pieces that toured East Gippsland Council offices and libraries.
We have a dedicated group of gardeners that tend our small raised garden bed. The produce they grow is then used in cooking classes when available.
