Extra-Curricular Activities

The school offers  opportunities for children to participate in various extra-curricular activites both at school and in the wider community.

There are community events such as the Kingaroy Eisteddfod, local shows, ANZAC day marches and others, where students are involved as representatives of the school.

Children can also be involved in fund-raising activities for local and international charities such as Operation Christmas Child, Lutheran World Service,  World Vision and the Queensland Cancer Council.

Arts performances are regularly held at school and excursions to various local places that relate to curriculum topics studied by the children are organised within individual classes.

The school offers access to an instrumental program, which includes a weekly ensemble practice and small group lessons. Instruments currently taught include saxophone, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, flute and percussion. Students are able to sit for music examinations for all grades for most instruments, and are encouraged to participate in the local eisteddfod and performances at school, church and other community events. Individual lessons are also available in a range of instruments as well as voice. Further information about this program is available in the Instrumental Music Prospectus available at the office.

Students in Years 3 to 9 participate in an annual camp at various locations.
These include:

  • Year 3 – Duckadang
  • Year 4 & 5 – Currimundi/ Mapleton
  • Year 6 – Canberra
  • Year 7 – Emu Gully
  • Year 8 – Coolum
  • Year 9 – Brisbane

Students in younger grades may participate in day excursions.

The camping program is regularly reviewed to ensure educational and team building activities are undertaken at each camp site.

The Sporting Schools program runs for three terms and is offered for three afternoons a week. It has included various activities such as: soccer, netball skills, archery etc. and is run by outside providers or teaching staff with an extra staff member supervising. This is an exciting physical activity program for Australian primary school children. The program provides increased opportunities for children to be physically active, to enhance their motor skill development, and to provide opportunities for participation in safe, fun and supervised activities during the after school hours.

The Active After-School Communities Sporting Schools Program is free to all children as it is part of the Federal Government’s commitment to building a healthy, active Australia.

We have an effective Buddy system, where children from Prep are paired with children from older classes. This enables Prep children to be more involved in the activities of the school. Buddies do special activites together in class and we often see the older children assisting the Preppies in the playground.

For occasions like Bookweek Day, the older students are able to help the Preppies confidently participate in activities outside the Prep classrooms.
