Academic Curriculum & Student Well Being
Somers Primary School’s academic curriculum is comprehensive, with a focus on Literacy, Numeracy and Science. Our programs provide for all abilities with additional support provided to children where required.
Our children are encouraged to be good citizens and to contribute to the wider society. Each term the school runs a Citizenship Assembly to recognise the contribution children make to the school and to the wider community.
The Student Well Being program promotes a harmonious environment and a calm place for both learning and play. Every week Achievement Awards are presented to children who have demonstrated excellence in their work and relationships.
Our Junior School Council and leadership positions encourage children to develop skills to empower them, not only during their primary school years, but further into their secondary and tertiary education. The school runs regular leadership programs for the Year 5 and 6 children to teach the skills of leadership, public speaking and organisation.
Somers Primary School provides a range of out of hours programs designed to broaden the children’s interests.
There is a before school Running Club which encourages fitness and is managed by a dedicated group of parents. The Active After School Program is government funded and gives children access to a range of programs such as Dance and Soccer.
Our Horizons program operates at lunchtime during terms 2 and 3 and provides children with a variety of programs to choose from, ranging from electronics to scrap booking, computers, dance and library activities.
