Clubs and Societies
Extra-curricular activities are a central part of our school life. Our school has an array of different clubs and societies which allow students to pursue their passions, make new friend's learn new skills and have fun. Between TikTok talent club, Running club, Cube club, Rugby League, Robotics and far more - there are a world of opportunities for students to do things that are interesting and fun.
At Babinda P-12 State School, we believe sport plays an integral part in providing a well-rounded education. Each year level enjoys the support, expert knowledge and training of specialist physical education teachers and the option of participating in coaching programs.
In addition to our swimming, athletics and cross country carnivals, many of our students represent the school at district, peninsula and state levels. Our track record of performance and participation at these levels is impressive for a school our size. Babinda punches above its weight.
Our school-wide sport programs build overall health and well-being, as well as enhancing co-ordination and skills development. Sport can teach students to co-operate and work with others to achieve a common goal, by setting and achieving personal goals, building a sense of fair play and adherence to rules, learning how to both win and lose graciously and to overcome disappointments.
Arts and music
From our students’ earliest years, we seek to develop an enthusiasm and love of artistic and musical expression. Beginning in prep, our students explore concepts
and styles in a fun, no-pressure environment. Academic music and visual art are studied across the primary school and visual and performing arts continue into secondary as electives. Across the school, instrumental music is an opportunity available to all students with expert lessons provided for students.
Culture and citizenship
Participation in cultural activities helps build a tight-knit community, develop school loyalty and friendships, as well as giving individuals a deeper personal
understanding and life-long skills. Our students participate in a wide range of cultural activities from involvement with NAIDOC celebrations to a heavy involvement in the towns ANZAC day commemorations and Harvest festival. As a school our students are actively involved in the community of Babinda through various curriculum related activities such as hospitality visits, film and television awards, town visits as well as obviously employment and work experience placements. We encourage our students to be active members of the wider community and support their involvement through our cultural awards at presentation night.
