Term 4 After School Program!

With much aplomb our After School Program has launched for Term Four. We’ve got amazing creativity in droves, with some amazing new offerings in Vala, Creative Catalyst, and Cornucopia all.

After School Program In Creative Catalyst, we launch with Monster Masks, a fantastic paper-craft and papier mache project. We’re also super excited to return to Hearth for an excursion of artistic inspiration – which we’ll see later on this term

After School Program

In Vala’s Dramatic Adventure Program we were chuffed to see how our stories panned out last term – so we’re getting started with an introduction to character play in our first week back! For students who have long been attending, this promises to be a fantastic look back at what makes Vala so unique, and for newcomers, a world of characters and stories awaits in our After School program!

After School Program

In Cornucopia, we’re keeping cool with launch into a summer theme of snack foods, sorbets, and more. And by popular demand, we’re going to have a crack at making lasagne – from scratch!

After School Program

In Sparks Creative Play, we can see a bunch of our students graduating to our older classes, but have a host of exciting activities for our youngest crew to get involved with as our After School program unfolds.
