Kindergarten Starting Age
Pre-Kinder Transition Time
Students in our Primary Choir have been building up skills, courage and confidence since 2010. The students love singing and can often be found around the school singing their favourite songs from choir or showing their teacher a new song they have learned.
Primary Choir is open to students in years 1 to 6 and has grown to over 40 students. Kindergarten are invited to join in Term 4.
The students participate and perform at many events including special school assemblies, Music Count Us In, Easter and Christmas events, Carols in the Park, Evergreens, Parkes Performing Arts Festival and Eisteddfods.
The students love singing praise and worship songs and this forms the basis of most of our repertoire.
The purpose of homework is to develop good home study habits in all students and to increase contact and understanding between home and the school. Homework assists in linking school and home by allowing for the interest and involvement of parents.
Kindergarten to Year 2
Homework in Kindergarten to Year 2 is intended to be a habit building activity and not an onerous task.
Year 3 to Year 6
Homework is for revising classroom work and for developing initial research skills.
Our school addresses the on-going spiritual development of our students and staff. Staff commence each morning with devotions, where each staff member takes a turn in sharing something that they feel God has put on their heart to encourage each other; devotions end in prayer ready for the school day. Staff are also required to be actively involved in a local church.
It is our aim that all of our students receive individual care and attention in Christian love, which allows them to grow in Christian maturity.
Each day students participate in devotions with their class or roll call teacher.
PEARLS is our Award system that we have implemented as a way of rewarding our students and fostering in them qualities that will last a lifetime.
If staff see students modelling any of these behaviours the teacher hands out a pearl. These pearls add up with the student then receiving an award handed out in a full school assembly
