Sporting Schools (Formerly Active After School Communities)

Spring Parks Primary School is involved in the Australian Sports Commission’s ‘Sporting Schools’ program, (previously known as the Active After School Communities). The program will run at Spring Parks in Term 4, on both West Campus and Valley Campus. This program is delivered nationally and is designed to engage children in structured physical activities.

The after school program offers fun, safe and inclusive activities providing children with the opportunity to develop essential motor skills and an enthusiasm for being active.

The activities are FREE OF CHARGE.

The activities will run from 3.30pm-4.45pm Students will be given a drink and a snack prior to starting their activity.

 

 

Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club is run on both campuses. Volunteers run the program in the mornings and children are offered a drink, toast and cereal. Children who arrive at school early must stay at Breakfast Club until 8:30. Breakfast is served until 8:50 to enable children to have enough time to eat and then pack up and not arrive late to class.

This has begun again at both campuses. Breakfast club starts at 8.15 a.m. in the Art Room at West, and the LEC at Valley. At our last breakfast club for term four, Pollie, the Officeworks mascot visited the students at West Campus and the volunteers made pancakes for the students. This was a real treat for us all! Some children also received a voucher to be spent at Officeworks, because of a colouring in competition that they’d entered at school.

 

Homework Club

Homework Clubs are held at both campuses for students in grades 3, 4, 5 and 6. Children have the opportunity to do their homework or reading and if needed, will be encouraged and assisted by supervising staff members and volunteers.

The Homework Clubs assist students in developing good study habits, such as being organised, planning ahead and research skills.

Every student that attends the Homework clubs will need to agree to a strict code of conduct – as the club will be a quiet time for students to study and get work done in peace. Students will be expected to supply their own stationary, as required.
