Each year we are thrilled with the enthusiasm of the students to put forward ideas to run lunchtime clubs. In the past some of the clubs we have had included:
A group of students wanted to run a club where others could learn how to play chess and then participate in a competition. Chess sets were kindly donated and the club was a huge success with students learning the rules and participating in a tournament.
In this club students learnt how to knit a variety of stitch styles. Each student knitted a square. Each square was then sewn into a small blanket, which was earmarked for donation to the RSPCA for abandoned animals.
With a number of students wanting to teach their skills to others they started a club where each week a different aspect of origami was taught. Throughout the time of this club a number of creations were made including cranes, boxes, stars and even a dragon.
At Diamond Creek Primary School we are open to ideas and catering for the diverse interests of the students. If they have an idea for a club and there is a group of students who are interested in participating to learn new skills and to enjoy the company of others, we endeavor to run clubs to facilitate this.
