All our after school clubs are undertaken by qualified teachers and instructors who plan an interesting sequence of activities in areas where students show interest or expertise.
The chess club is comprised of two groups - beginners and intermediate. These children meet on separate afternoons so that they are able to receive tuition at a level appropriate to their skill.
For many students, the chess club complements chess as a curriculum subject taught in Years 2, 3 and 4. However, students of any year level are eligible to become part of the chess club. Our chess players compete in a number of competitions across the city of Toowoomba.
The woodwork club, conducted by our manual arts teacher, seeks to involve groups of students in the construction of items that stand to benefit the school community as a whole. Recent projects have included the building of picnic tables for lunch time use. Skills, taught at the woodwork club, are more advanced than those that form the manual arts subject of the school.
The art club is also very popular with students. Working with a small group of children after school, the art teacher is able to provide exciting challenges in mediums that may not be suitable to whole-class lessons during curriculum time. Special Effects in Photography is a typical example. Members of the Art Club have opportunities to exhibit their work on a regular basis.
