Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School offers a diverse range of extra-curricular activities for the students of the school.
As part of our sustainability program at the school we actively encourage all students and staff to be involved in the Gardening Club. It runs on a Tuesday fortnightly basis after school and is held in the Garden Centre.
In Term 1 the school offers swimming training twice a week in preparation for the Swimming Carnival. This is open to students from Year 3 – 6 who are at an appropriate swimming level, and competent in the 50m pool. It is held before school at the local swimming pool.
Running Club is held twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday, before school between 7.45am – 8.00am. Our aim is build community through running, to increase self-confidence through mastering your running technique and achieving a level of fitness you may not have experienced before. Whether you walk or jog, SOTS Running Club is for everyone (parents and children).
