Extracurricular Program

At Erasmus, we provide the opportunity for Years 4, 5 and 6 students to experience a creative and diverse Camp program.  These programs provide opportunities for students to develop respect for others, themselves and the environment; self-esteem, leadership, self-motivation and an appreciation of the world around them.  

Year 4: Camp Manyung

Year 5: Leadership Camp

Year 6: Ski Camp at Mt Hotham

Years 5 and 6: Canberra Experience (every second year)

During the year, classes attend excursions that introduce different ways of learning and enhance the children’s experiences and knowledge of subjects covered in class.  Examples include Sovereign Hill, Melbourne and Werribee Zoos, Melbourne Planetarium, Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium, Reptile Encounters, Ballet and Opera Australia. 

Incursions vary in format and may be interactive presentations by visiting men and women in our community who are accomplished in their chosen field, such as scientists, cultural leaders and performers.

Our approach is to link incursions and excursions to an area of investigation within the classroom.  

Students can take private individual lessons at school during school hours in piano, violin and flute.  Opportunities are provided for individual and group recitals at school. 

Group clinics are offered for tennis.

At the beginning of each term a timetable is provided to families with details of the extracurricular activities offered.  Activities include ballet, chess, CSIRO CREST, Indian dance, instrumental music, Junior Engineers, knitting, Latin, soccer, tennis and yoga.  

Details can be obtained from Reception.
