ITALIAN – La Bella Vita

In these sessions, through the use of Songs, Games, Active Learning Techniques and ICT we will have fun whilst gaining an insight into Italian culture and acquiring beneficial language skills. The sessions will be catered for students who both have prior learning of Italian and for those with none. All are welcomed.

Let’s Get Cooking is an excellent opportunity for you to learn about the kitchen, prepare a recipe, cook with a stove and eat your results. Each week you will have fun with other students while gaining confidence and culinary skills. You’ll be able to take the recipes home to recreate your new signature dish for your family! 

 

STEM - Hands on Coding

Have you ever wondered what controls the school bells? The electronic bus times?  The crossing lights?  These electronics are all run by computers, coded by people who were once in primary school like you!  Come along to write some code, then watch your coding light up in real life on an electronic Arduino board.  You may even get to hear your code in action too!

 

ENGLISH – Australian Fairytales

 

Flex the muscles of your imagination and write a new Australian Fairytale with us. 

 

Students will discuss what a fairytale is and consider the Australian culture- what we value and the ‘happily ever afters’ we aspire to. Students will learn about the narrative form and employ Freytag’s Pyramid (dramatic structure) to construct their own modern fairytale. 

 

MEDIA - Movie Making Magic

Students will learn how to plan a short film, use cameras and editing software to bring their creations to the screen.  This workshop will also be an opportunity to learn some easy special effects, prop making and green screening over the four weeks.  If you are an aspiring future filmmaker, this is the course for you!

 

SCIENCELaboratory Fun

The first few steps into the world of Science with introductions to the fields of Biology, Chemistry and Physics followed by an exploration of what the strands of science can come together to create. You will get the chance to perform many of the experiments for yourself and get a real feel for the discipline of Science!

 

PERFOMRING ARTS – Music

 

In Music, students will be given an experience of playing rock band instruments including Guitar, Bass, Keyboard and Drums. Over the 4 weeks they will learn how to play some famous riffs including ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘Another One Bites the Dust’ and ‘Seven Nation Army’ and then will perform these in a small band setting for each other. For students who want to pursue extra-curricular music in high school this will be a great a starting point and will give you a good idea of which instrument they may want to pursue.
