JUMPING CLAY CREATIVE CLUB

Our very popular Jumping Clay creative club runs on a Wednesday afternoon from 2.30-3.30pm.  Each 6 week block of sessions provides an interactive, hands-on experience using air-dry clay.  Each week the children will embark on a new path of discovery and create a new masterpiece to take home that day.

EARTH

Earth Club is a great way to get children energized about taking care of Planet Earth. The children realise that learning and interacting with their local environment is very important but also good fun. They have opportunities to reuse and recycle. They make beautiful candle holders with jam jars decorated with decoupage. All winter they take care of the birds in our school grounds and even make them special bird cake. The children create wonderful artwork to encourage others to join with them in looking after our environment.

Primary 3 children may also be involved in the school Eco Committee.
