Our Special Programs

Music

We enjoy a very good reputation for producing many fine musicians. All children benefit from weekly lessons with a music specialist teacher.

Music tutors are available with strings (Years 3-6), percussion / drums (Years 4-6) and a variety of other instruments (Years 4-6).

Our senior and junior concert bands and string group perform at various times throughout the year within our school, in the local community and even at Federation Square in Melbourne.

Annual Production

One of the features of our school is an Annual Production involving all students from Years 3-6, in a musical play, performed on stage at a venue in Maffra or Sale.

Daytime matinees and evening performances attract large audiences who marvel at the talents of our children in these lavish, high quality shows.

School Camps

School Camps are part of the education program for older children.  They give children the opportunity to experience living away from the family, to learn the need for co-operation, to use self-reliance as well as seeing different environments and practising some skills learned at school.


 

Physical and Sports Education

All children receive a comprehensive program in developing physical skills, with the provision of class lessons, including the Perceptual Motor Program provided in Prep classes.

During Term 2, all grades spend time at the Maffra Gymnastics Club facility, with trained gymnastics instructors and world class equipment.

Swimming lessons are provided at the Maffra Pool (outdoor) for Years 5/6 and Kemp Aquatics (indoor) for Years Prep to 4.

All students are organised into four houses:

Cambrai Green House
Powerscourt Blue House
Mewburn Yellow House
Duart Red House

This is the basis for competitive sports held throughput the year, including events in swimming, cross country running and athletics.


Affiliation with the Victorian Primary Schools Sports Association enables Years 3-6 students to progress through from zone to state and even national levels of competition. Students also have opportunities to develop skills and compete at high levels in a range of sports.

Visual arts

The Visual Arts program engages all students in experiences that will allow them to learn about themselves and the world around them.  The students are given opportunities to experiment with ideas, concepts and feelings and are encouraged to think, imagine, create and appreciate.  Students receive up to ninety minutes each week in a magnificent art room located in the original heritage building.  Classes in drawing, painting, threads and textiles, construction, ceramics and collage are undertaken during the year.

Global studies.

Global Studies is an area that is integrated into the visual arts program and is delivered to students from Years 3 to 6.  This program, combined with the visual arts program, is designed to broaden students' view of the world through making and appreciating art forms and investigating different cultures.  Students will become more globally knowledgeable and discover and learn geographical facts as well as learn some basic language such as greetings and numbers.
