International Exchange Program
Belgrave South Primary School students have shared an exchange program with the Takapuna Intermediate Normal School in New Zealand for 20 years. In 2014 as part of the new Australian Curriculum we have begun a new relationship with Mito Eiko Elemantary School in Japan. Read about this years exchange here.
Students gain first hand cultural awareness through their time away and often make strong bonds with their exchange families.
Students at Belgrave South Primary School take a fun weekly Performing Arts class with Mr Ozzie. In addition to these classes, our children are provided with a variety of performing arts opportunities.
These include our impressive Grade 6 annual school productions, a State School Spectacular team, Level 2 and 3 participation in Musical in a Day, lunch time Dance & Drama groups and our school junior and senior choirs.
Our whole school assembly is also a place where we celebrate the performing arts through whole school singing.
Throughout their time at Belgrave South Primary School, our students are taught to value and apply the Keys to Success; Getting Along, Persistence, Organisation and Confidence.
Our senior students practise these skills through leadership positions such as School and Vice Captains, Literacy and Numeracy Captains, House Captains, Library and Office Assistants.
From Grade 3 up our students can be nominated for Junior School Council. Here they attend weekly meetings tackling authentic issues.
All of our classrooms are equipped with Smartboard Interactive Whiteboards. We have Netbook distribution for Levels 3 and 4, open space desktop pods in the Early Years Learning Centre, a full computer lab adjoining the library and 20 iPads are being trialled in our Grade 5 classes.
