Extra Curricular Activities
At Padbury Catholic Primary School we have a wide range of Extra Curricular Activities on offer for students throughout the school:
To practice our Cross Country Running skills, Running Club is 1 morning before school on our oval in Term 2 and 3. This is a hugely popular training club, with over 200 students joining in.
Swimming Training is held before school 2 mornings a week throughout Term 1. Students receive training by our coaches at Craigie Leisure Centre, before returning to school to start the school day.
Coding Club is run after school once a week during Term 2 and 3. The aim of Coding Club is to develop the students' innovation, creativity and problem-solving skills by providing them with opportunities to learn how to write codes and further enrich their digital technologies skills. This program is run by our Key Teacher in Technologies.
Lego Masters is held at lunch times during Term 4 in our Learning Hub, where we have a Lego wall and dedicated Lego Tables. Students use their creativity to work in teams and build creations based around a specific theme. Entires are judged and winners announced for each year level.
Years 5 & 6 students are offered the opportunity to be involved in a full-scale biennial Musical Production with rehearsals throughout Term 2 and 3, with a number of performances in Term 3. The Musical is a wonderful opportunity for those with acting, dancing and singing talents, as well as those interested in making props and backgrounds, to display their talents. In 2021, the Musical Production was The Amazing Adventures of Superstan.
