The Preparatory School's Co-curricular program is an essential part of our school week. The program
is structured, enriching and beneficial for all students. We pride ourselves on our students having a healthy and active lifestyle.
The School's full Co-curricular program is highlighted in Beyond the Classroom.
Being a member of sporting teams is compulsory for all students from Years 3 to 6. Our Kindergarten to Year 2 students have the option of being part of our winter sporting teams and historically around 85% take up the option.
In summer the following sports are played, depending on students' age: tennis, swimming, cricket, touch football and basketball. Teams are either entered in local town competitions or internal matches are played.
In winter, sports offered are hockey, netball, soccer and rugby. All teams play in external competitions. Training takes place two afternoons per week and games are played on Saturday and occasionally Sunday.
Sport at Kinross Wolaroi School offers so many benefits to your child.
Besides the 'active body, active mind' component, there are skills to be learned and the social benefit of being part of a team. Many parent friendships also originate on the sidelines of various sports on those brisk, winter Saturday mornings.
Music is another important part of our Co-curricular program at Kinross Wolaroi School. During the school day many students take advantage of the specialised individual tuition available for instruments, singing, speech and drama.
The skills students learn in our Music program are then incorporated into our various music ensembles. These groups practise of an afternoon or morning and perform at concerts, eisteddfods and on special occasions throughout the year. Our directors are highly talented and skilled musicians and music continues to be a rewarding experience for our students.
Drama is another aspect of our Co-curricular program. All of our students from Kindergarten to Year 6 are involved in a musical production. Students have the opportunity to dance, sing and act and the productions are highly admired by parents who enjoy seeing their children grow in confidence and skills. Our staff members are also actively involved, whether it is in writing the show, directing or producing. Performance time is one of the highlights of our year.
