School Kitchen Garden

Our school is blessed to have the advantage of not only a substantial plot of land dedicated to growing vegetables and fruits, but also excellent preparation and cooking facilities in our school kitchen/canteen. Under the guidance of garden guru 'Mr Tim' Lowry, each class has a fortnightly garden experience, often culminating in the preparation, cooking, and eating of a wide range of foods. Through this program students also learn about stewardship and sustainability.

Physical Education

All students attend weekly PE sessions. In addition to this the school runs a swimming carnival for Years 3 to 6, swimming lessons for Years 2 to 5, athletics carnival for Prep to Year 6, and cross country for Prep to Year 6. Students from Years 3 to 6 that compete in these events then potentially have the opportunity to compete in inter-school events. Lunchtime activities such as volleyball, indoor bowls and table tennis are also offered at various times throughout the year.


Students from Kinder to Year 6 attend weekly music lessons. There is also the opportunity for students to be involved in various choral programs throughout the year.


It is a requirement that all year levels teach Technologies, as well as Science and Mathematics. Students in Years 5 & 6 also have the opportunity to be involved in First Lego League, which is a heavily STEM related project that involves programming Lego Robots. Students also have access to a range of robotics equipment across all year levels.


As well as doing drama in all year levels, students in Years 3 to 6 have the opportunity to be involved in the Deloraine Drama Festival through a school coordinated play. 


Students from all year levels attend Library once per week and are encouraged to select new books each week to take home and read in class.
