Project active, Hillbrook's co-curricular activity program, provides plenty of opportunities for students to pursue new interests and hobbies and to mix with students from all year levels.
The benefits of regular activity are well documented - an increased sense of belonging and achievement, increased physical and mental ability and a better self image. Project Active is compulsory for students in Years 7, 8 and 9 to encourage development of specific skills. Most activities occur after school and some take pace on weekends.
Does everyone have to particpate?
If you are in Years 7, 8 or 9 it is expected that you participate in one Project Active activity each semester, as a minimum. In Years 10, 11 and 12 these activities are voluntary. Remember, your participation in school-run co-curricular activities is marked on your student involvement file. Students must attend more than half of the Project Active sessions as a minimum. Please ensure your attendance is marked on the roll each session. If you are sick or unable to attend a session you must leave a note explaining your absence with Leisa before the session.
How do I enroll?
Parents will be able to select an activity on behalf of their child from the range of options listed on Parent Lounge. Students must be involved in physical activity on a regular basis with interschool teams or outside of school to be excused; they may only be excused by the Project Active Coordinator, Kristy Boyle.
How do I pay?
Payment is made at the time of selecting an activity from the options available in Parent Lounge.
How do I know if I am in an activity?
Groups are formed on a first-in basis and activities can only be run if minimum numbers are reached. As a result, activities may be cancelled from time to time. In this circumstance parents will be emailed and credited the activity fee.
Where can I go for more information?
You will find more information on each activity, currently available, in the schedule below. Please contact the Project Active Coordinator, Kristy Boyle (via email), with any further queries.
