Uniform

All students enrolled at Narre Warren South P-12 College are to attend in full school uniform. The purpose of the Narre Warren South P-12 College Uniform is:

  • To create a sense of collective and individual pride in Narre Warren South P-12 College students and the identification with our school.
  • To assist in individual student safety and group security when traveling to and from school and on school excursions.
  • To promote active and safe participation in school life.
  • Issues of equality, health and safety, and expense are also factors that contribute to the establishment of the Uniform Policy.

In keeping with the “SunSmart” campaign it is College Policy that primary student’s wear a wide brimmed or legionnaire school hat during Terms 1 and 4 and all students wear correct school uniform every day. Ensure all parts of your child’s uniform are clearly labeled with their name and grade.

Kitchen Garden

The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program at Narre Warren South P-12 started in March 2012. The aim of the program is to deliver regular kitchen and garden classes, enabling skills-based learning that extends across the entire school curriculum. Grade 1 and 2 students work alongside our Garden Specialist and students in Grade 3 and 4 learn the techniques of cooking.

As participants in the Kitchen Garden Program students spend structured time in a productive vegetable garden and home-style kitchen as part of their everyday school experience. There they learn skills that will last them a lifetime, and discover just how much fun it is to grow and cook their own seasonal fruits and vegetables. The experiences are also linked to the integrated, literacy and numeracy learning of the students. EAL (English as additional language) students have the opportunity to engage in real life experiences in the garden as well.

Specialist Program

Performing Arts

Our Performing Arts program has been designed to meet the individual needs of your child whilst engaging and stimulating their creativity in a specially created work space for primary school students. Performing Arts classes are held one hour per week offering a high quality, professional program from Prep to Year 6. Narre Warren South P-12 College offers several extra-curricular activities including 'Narre's Got Talent', Junior and Senior Choir and lunchtime clubs which the students can choose to participate in.

Physical Education

The primary focus of the Physical Education Program is to develop and enhance the physical activity skills of all students and to encourage and foster a positive attitude toward a healthy and active lifestyle. Every student in Prep to Year 6 participates in a one hour Physical Education class per week. Many students have the opportunity to spend more time participating in a variety of additional physical activity programs through extra-curricular teacher-run sporting activities such as coaching sessions. Throughout the PE program, children are given access to coaching sessions, sporting carnivals, district sporting competitions and Lightning Premierships. Narre Warren South P-12 College prides itself on its inclusive Physical Education Program, a program that also adapts and caters for an ever changing school context.

Visual Arts

The Visual Arts Program at Narre Warren South P-12 College encourages students to express their creative thinking skills and ideas, and to develop problem solving techniques. Students actively participate in a variety of visual art activities using a variety of sources, materials and techniques. Students are encouraged to respond and evaluate the artworks that are produced by themselves and their peers. We examine a wide variety of artworks and the way they are made and value each other’s work. Students are taught the elements of Visual Arts and use this to structure, plan and influence their work to the best of their ability. Artwork is displayed during the year inside and outside the school.

Science

The Science Program at Narre Warren South P-12 College is for students in Year 3 – 6. Utilising our science labs within the school, primary students have access to a working science lab and materials and have access to our science technicians. This gives our students a distinct advantage over other primary schools. Students conduct experiments, test out theories and delve into science topics such as electricity, adaptation and survival and states of matter.

Digital Technologies

The Digital Technologies Program at Narre Warren South P-12 College is for students in Years 3-6. The school has invested heavily into providing IT platforms, such as iPads for students to investigate and use coding to program robots, understand digital systems and binary codes. Online safety is of high importance to us at NWSC and students are taken through ways to protect themselves online and how to use online platforms respectfully and safely. As our changing world is becoming more reliant on digital technologies it is most important that our students have the required IT skills and our Digital Technologies Program certainly gives them a great start.
