The Power hour was introduced in September 2011, as a way of providing children with a range of experiences that would enable them to enjoy different activities that were not part of the regular curriculum. In these sessions, children would develop communication, team-work and problem-solving skills which are vital in our everyday lives. The Power hour still takes place in school today, although its form has evolved over the years.
For one hour every Thursday afternoon, the regular curriculum shuts down to make way for the ‘Power Hour’ - experiences that enable the children in Years 2 to 6 to work in their class groups to learn a variety of other skills.
Each class enjoys activities which are planned to take place in 6 week blocks in the following areas:
Wellbeing - Healthy eating
Wellbeing - Healthy Mind
Wellbeing - Healthy Body
Wellbeing - Online Safety
