It is school policy that students in Years 5 and 7 go on camps, generally for 4 days and 3 nights. The Year 4 and 6 students have a Big Day Out that requires an early start and an early evening return to school.
An invitation to attend camp is a privilege to be earned by all students. Taking students away is an enormous responsibility for the staff and volunteers. If a child often misbehaves, has demonstrated that they are not willing to cooperate when asked or displays a poor attitude, they pose a risk to the safety and welfare of themselves and other students.
These students will not be invited on camp.
A general consent form needs to be signed (provided with this package) for your child/ren to take part in local sporting and educational excursions. A special consent form will be sent home for trips away from the local area.
From time to time children will need to bring money to pay for something special – excursion/performance/bus fares etc. Please make sure that this money is brought in a sealed, clearly named and marked envelope.
Mrs Heidi Yelland organises and conducts a school Choir, with all interested students from Years 4 to 7. The choir takes part in annual Festivals in Mt Gambier and in Adelaide.
The school has an extensive sporting program, beginning with Daily Fitness for all classes. Sport is a normal part of a class program. School-based teams also operate on weekends, with parent support.
Our school manages the South East Cross Country Championships each year. We are also actively involved in SAPSASA for Years 6 & 7.
