Extra Curriculum Programs
Loreto Nedlands hosts a wide variety of unique programmes aimed at enriching the learning experiences of our students across all age groups. Our programmes are focused on developing problem solving, logical thinking and teamwork through the exploration of scientific, literacy, outdoor and holistic applications.
Robotics after school club at Loreto is a wonderful opportunity for students to develop their coding and robotics skills in preparation for RoboCup. Our programme encourages our students to take an interest in science and technology through hands on experiences, helping them to develop into creative and independent young adults.
Maths just isn’t about time tables and formulas! Maths helps find creative solutions to problems, develops resilience, persistence, confidence and creative thinking in students. Maths Olympiad helps students to be creative solution finders for today and in the future.
Environment Club is held weekly for our Loreto students. It aims to educate and cultivate an appreciation and interest in the environment and to instil a sense of responsibility where students learn about and work towards conserving the sustainability of their environment.
Students need to understand that as they read, their job is to notice things that they want to share and discuss with their group. Literature circles/book clubs are a time for very purposeful independent reading in a book shared with others. Students are expected to come to group with reactions and thoughts to share.
Our Mini Vinnies programme allows our Year Four to Six students the opportunity to be involved in social justice issues and to living faith by taking action. Our young students meet regularly to talk and share ideas on how they can do good work for the community, connecting their beliefs and values through relevant service activities. Examples of the work our Mini Vinnies do include coordinating winter clothing drives, food collections and baking sessions for the homeless of Perth. Other initiatives include our Year Five and Six student visits to the Alfred Carson Aged Care Facility every term.
Lego club is an exciting initiative run twice a week during lunchtime in the Library. Children from Years Five and Six come on Mondays whilst Years Three and Four come on Fridays. Thanks to some generous donations of Lego) we have been able to see children have fun, being creative, solving problems and building whatever their imagination can come up with.
