Extracurricular Programs

Incursions, Excursions and Camps

Excursions and visits to the school by performers and speakers, which are an integral part of the curriculum, are arranged frequently during the year. In planning these, the staff takes into account the educational experience to be gained and the costs to parents. The School’s policy is that no child should miss out on these experiences if it can be avoided. We hold an annual camp for all students who would like to attend, alternating between urban, country and beachside experiences.

Afterschool Activities – STEM Club

We currently offer fortnightly after school activities, open to all four-year-old kindergarten and primary-aged children in the local area. We are currently offering STEM workshops for students to learn about and engage with science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts and projects. These workshops are very popular, and bookings are required.

Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge the Taungurung people as the first peoples of Buxton and the surrounding areas. The Taungurung have been custodians and caretakers of the land, animals and waters for many thousands of years and continue to perform age-old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal. We also recognise other Indigenous peoples living and working in the Buxton area.

Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships

In response to the Royal Commission into Family Violence, Buxton Primary School is committed to promoting and embedding respectful relationships and gender equality into our school’s curriculum, ethos, vision and values. In our school, the focus is on treating everyone with respect and dignity, developing personal, social and emotional skills and contributing to early intervention through education. We aim to create real and lasting change in the lives of our students, staff, families and the wider school community.
