Specialist programs

Find out about the range of specialist programs our school offers.


We offer a strong program in the Arts, including music, dance, drama and media. The program helps develop students’ creativity, confidence, cultural knowledge and critical thinking – and includes: 

  • lunch time art club working on student’s own projects 
  • school choir, with participation in the Festival Choir 
  • participation in the Primary School Music Festival 
  • instrumental music lessons with either the violin, trumpet or recorder.

Choir is held weekly, and students can participate in the Festival of Music concerts held both in the SE and Adelaide. Students also have access to instrumental music lessons via the duct system, with face to face lessons offered in brass instruments, guitar and piano.

Each year, students enjoy a week’s worth of dance lessons with Footsteps Dance Company. With a focus on social skills and traditional partner dancing, these dances are performed throughout the year at social functions and discos.


Students can develop team play and team building skills through our specialist sports program. The program is run by a specialist teacher and volunteer parent coaches. Our program includes: 

  • SAPSASA events 
  • team sports (cricket, Aussie Rules, football, netball, volleyball, tennis and basketball) 
  • sports day and swimming carnival 
  • swimming and aquatics lessons. 

We also offer lunchtime activities in the hall, which vary each week from basketball to dancing. 


Indonesian is our language of study for all students. Each class has a 1-hour lesson per week, which helps student learn to speak the language and understand the Indonesian culture.  

The Indonesian program includes: 

  • learning about Indonesian art, dance and music 
  • celebrating Indonesian events

Learning a language helps students gain a broader cultural perspective, opens up career pathways, and promotes social cohesion and cross-cultural understanding.  

Reading and literacy

All students are encouraged to participate in the Premier’s Reading Challenge each year. We now have a large number of students who have been awarded Legend Medals. Over 95 percent of all students are successfully completing the PRC each year.

Each year parents can subscribe to the Birthday Book Club where, for a small cost, a book is bought for the library to celebrate their child’s birthday; a plaque is placed in the front of the book indicating the child’s name, their birthday and the year the book was donated.
