Extra Curriculum Activities
Students at Albany Rise have many extra curricular opportunties. We offer both in school activities and out of hours activities. We endevour to provide students with a range of opportunities to encourage their interests, skills and experiences.
At the start of each new year, students work with teachers to establish positive practices and protocols for working in the classroom and yard with peers and adults. Students learn our Values, our Code of Conduct, our positive behaviours and our high expectations at Albany Rise. We celebrate all this learning through our special ‘Quality Beginnings Celebration Morning’.
Camps are an important part of education for every student. Students build upon their communication and interpersonal skills, independence, confidence and self-esteem. Students foster an appreciation for the environment, new experiences and develop their sense of exploration.Albany Rise students attend a range of different camps whilst at Primary School.
Excursions and Incursions
Each class participate in 1-2 excursions (out of school) or incursions (in school) each year. All excursions and incursions are researched and developed to increase students’ learning and experiences.
Bi-annually the Albany Rise community have a Fun Fiesta. Our parent association, staff and students run many different stalls and activities. In the past we have had face painting, discos, mini-olympics, sponge throw, sweet stalls, craft stalls and many many more.
