Our extramural programme is extensive. After school, learners have the option to join a broad range of activities ranging from sports, music, art, craft, technology, and social enterprise. Many of the extra-murals are free of charge but there are certain offerings that do carry an additional cost as it is hosted by Independent Service Providers. Please also see Arts & Culture for information on those programmes.
Blairgowrie Primary School offers the following exciting and additional activities:
The Eco Club is involved in planting gardens around our school, making children aware of environmental issues, creating awareness of the biodiversity around us, and how we can protect our environment.
We aim to create awareness amongst our school community and encourage learners to actively become eco-warriors; passing on the message of keeping our earth healthy, litter free, and water-wise.
We are very proud of our budding environmentalists as they look to influence our the attitudes of our BPS learners and to make a difference in the World.
Coding & Robotics
Our learners are our future workers and we have to ensure that they are well equipped and prepared for the digital age. It is because of this that BPS implemented a coding and robotics curriculum which will develop learners’ ability to solve problems, think critically, work collaboratively and creatively, function in a digital and information-driven world, apply digital and ICT skills, and transfer these skills to solve everyday problems.
Blairgowrie Primary School offers extra focused academic sessions to learners identified by teachers during contact time. These sessions are subject-specific and will be indicated on the extracurricular timetable each term. Learners who are required to attend these sessions will be provided with an individual invite by the teacher of the specific learning area. extra-focused
If your learner is given an invite, these sessions will become compulsory to attend, and in most circumstances should take preference over all other extracurricular activities. There is however an understanding that all extracurricular activities are important to the holistic development of a learner and a discussion needs to be had with the teacher and parents to overcome clashes but still meet the needs for extra assistance.
Signing can give children an educational boost, regardless of whether they have special needs. The signing also helps children access the curriculum and communicate with their teachers and peers, and it also has benefits for those who don’t have any additional needs.
Blairgowrie Primary School also offers the following activities, hosted by Independent Suppliers and carries an additional cost:
