Before & After school programs & lunchtime activities
Every term we have a new extra curricular timetable that is published on the website.
At Baynton West Primary School we offer a very popular after school STEM Club which is advertised via student expressions of interest. In Term 2 2022 our after school program is run on a Tuesday and focuses on engineering and coding skills.
The Arts have many extra curricular programs running throughout the year including Performance Troupe, Art Club, Beat Busters, Ukulele Group and a Junior Music group. Information regarding these groups and how to join comes directly from the specialist teachers.
The Health and Physical Education department run before school programs that differ depending on the sporting (and weather!) season and these programs fill rapidly often resulting in lunch time competitions being run in the same discipline. We have the ever popular Runners’ Club in Terms 2 & 3 with other sports rotated through such as Dodgeball & Ultimate Tag in Terms 1 & 4.
There are also three performance ensembles that rehearse during the week and are open to students from Years 4 -6 to join. Inclusion in the first two ensembles is guaranteed for any student who shows dedication and consistency in attendance and effort. The Performance Troupe are a choral based ensemble that combine singing and choreography. They rehearse after lunch every Wednesday (during class time).
The Baynton Beat Busters are a drumming ensemble that rehearse every Monday morning from 7:50am – 8.20am and again during the second half of lunch break on Thursdays. The Baynton Uke Group are a newly formed ensemble that learn to play the ukulele every Thursday morning from 7:50am – 8.20am. Inclusion in this group is dependent on numbers as well as dedication and consistency. Students can join more than one ensemble, however they must prove themselves to be a dedicated and consistent musician.
