Japanese

Students from Prep to Year Six participate in weekly Japanese lessons. The students are immersed in the culture and customs of the Japanese people, with further emphasis on language acquisition as they move through to Year Six.

Physical Education

Physical Education and Sport have a high priority at St. Joan of Arc. The school emphasizes the importance of Physical Education in the total education of the child. Each week the students participate in a Physical Education lesson and a sport session. The Physical Education lesson deals primarily with the development of gross motor skills and hand-eye coordination. During the sport sessions, students participate in game-based activities.

Camps

At St Joan of Arc we believe the opportunities arising from an experience such as camp, further contributes to the overall development of each child. The camp programs offered aim to reinforce the concepts of relationship building, teamwork and resilience. The challenging and stimulating experiences provided, take the children beyond the classroom and foster independence and self-confidence.
