Enrichment Program

​​​St Ignatius School prides itself on developing the whole child.  To this extent whilst ensuring high quality teaching and learning of the core curriculum the school also aims to complement this with the enrichment curriculum.

In Prep through to Year Two the school incorporates a social/emotional curriculum developing the children's communication skills, resilience and confidence.  These year levels are offered a gross and fine motor develpment program each week - "Crocodile Club".

In Year Three the children experience a course of relaxation through Art Therapy whilst in Year Four a compulsory Speech and Drama Unit is undertaken.  An engaging Instrumental Study takes place in Year Five offering tuition to all students to learn brass, woodwind or percussion.  In Year Six, a strong onus on preparation for Secondary School and further development of leadership skills occurs as well as debating training and competition opportunities.

Further focus on the importance of indigenous culture occurs through the schools Reconcilitaion Action Project (RAP) - an Australian wide project which supports future awareness of building positive relationships between indigenous and non-indigenous people.  It provides the school with a framework for the future, detailing steps and prioirities to achieve indigenous equality. 

Public Speaking and Debating are offered to Year 6 students by an external provider; and opportunities for interschool competition are created with neighbouring primary schools.

A school herb and vegetable garden is managed by the Year 1 caretakers promoting a healthy environment and healthy eating patterns. 

Extended Sporting opportunities are also key aspects of the school's envigorating curriculum.
