After-school Clubs

We are very fortunate to be able to facilitate many community led after school clubs in our school. We hope that we can continue with these and many other external clubs into the future. 

Our teachers  also run after school clubs which are detailed each term. Below are details of the clubs that currently run in our school. Please note that these are privately run and should be contacted directly with enquiries. 

Anyone4science was founded in 2005 with the aim of bringing high levels of science education to children. Since then we have successfully done so through schools, libraries and online classes. Our leaders are passionate about both education and science with an aim to provide an environment where children, their parents and
teachers discover through active learning, laboratory experiments, workshops and demonstrations that science is fun and interesting. By awakening this interest, we hope to guide the future generation of scientists to this new world.

Our Players Junior weekly drama workshops are laying the foundation for Drama, Arts, and Creativity. We use the scenarios that your child is familiar with to hone these skills. We use drama, theatre, storytelling, rhyme, and imaginative play to take them on a journey of self-expression and creative exploration through engaging play.
