Extra Curricular activities

We are an active learning community, committed to activities and events that support our community and keep us all fit, healthy and connected. This is promoted through our involvement in events including:

Portland Christmas Carols December 2023

2022 Upwelling Festival march through Portland


We are very proud of our camping program which works on a rotation basis, ensuring student experience a range of different camping experiences and environments. Each year level has their own camp (or excursions) related to the learning happening within classrooms themes. Our Year 1 students have an annual ‘sleepover’ experience at school, with the Foundation students joining them for breakfast the next morning. This is usually combined with a shared excursion day out. 

In 2023 our camps were: Grade 4-6 Urban Camp- Melbourne; Grade 2/3 Warra Gnan- Warrnambool; F/1 School sleepover for Year 1 students and a Foundation breakfast at school the following morning.

In Term 3 we joined with all the other schools in the Portland/ Heywood district to celebrate NAIDOC week at the Portland foreshore. This was an exciting event, and complemented our Dhauwurd Wurrung Language and Culture Curriculum beautifully. A great achievement by all schools, showing our commitment to our people and environment.
