lunchtime programs

Lunchtime Programs are particularly appreciated by those students who find navigating the playground a little overwhelming. Some students struggle with the lack of structure in the playground and prefer activities that are guided by a teacher. Other students may find it difficult to initiate or maintain friendships or may be interested in quieter activities not usually available outside. Friendships blossom between children who find a common interest, and who they may not otherwise have met. Bringing students together from all year levels also supports buddy friendships and social groups.

The programs are organised and supervised by staff who generously share their expertise (and forego their lunch break!) to make Lunch Clubs a fun and valuable experience for students. An announcement is made over the Public Address system before the session is about to commence.

For 2017, our Lunchtime Programs will run in Terms 2 and 3 according to the timetable below.
