- Kiwisport (Year 4 - 6)
- Inter school sports – swimming, athletics, cross county, rippa, mountain biking, triathlon, basketball
- Swimming lessons – four weeks in term 1, currently funded by our Home and School group
We also offer programmes for students who require additional support with their learning.
These programmes are run by our Teacher Aides and the Learning Support Co-ordinator, who liaise with classroom teachers about the needs of the students. We also offer a Reading Recovery programme for identified 6 year olds.
Students who achieve highly may be selected to be in our extension programmes. They spend part of a day each week in terms 2 and 3 working with our Extension Co-ordinator and other children, working on a range of projects and programmes. If they wish, they can sit the International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) examinations in English and Mathematics.
