Here at Cobram Anglican Grammar School our dedicated academic staff offer a wide variety of lunch activities for students of all year levels to participate in. Here are just some of the activities offered:
The STEM lab is open every lunchtime for students in Years Five to Twelve that are looking for a quieter place to play. It has been put together over the last couple of years with the planning for its design lead by the interests of the students.
What is available?
We have a sign on sheet for the virtual reality system. One person per day can spend their lunchtime playing in the virtual realm. One of our students has also started bringing in his Ocular for others to enjoy.
We are busy building and perfecting the new flight simulator and car simulator that we started building last year. We now have the screen, the tower and lots of donated elements – cage, chairs, steering wheels, pedals, joy sticks.
Students can learn in the flight simulator using Microsoft Flight Simulator or learn some road rules / how to respond to hazards in the car simulator.
We have multiple board games on the go with “Castle Ravenclaw” in one corner, and “Betrayal at the House on the Hill” is in full swing in another corner. These adventure games take about a week of lunchtimes to play so we leave them set up on the project tables. Card games like Uno are also popular.
There are also people in the STEM Lab classroom aka "GROK competition headquarters" busily working on the GROK web development competition.
Chess is being offered each Tuesday at lunch time to allow students to learn or practise their chess game. Junior students who are interested in learning are encouraged to come and work with Mrs Chmiel and Senior School students to learn the basics or learn some cool new moves if they are already familiar with the game. If there is enough interest, Mrs Chmiel will be looking at organising competitions with other ASC schools.
Ukulele Play Along
Mrs Chmiel is offering Ukulele Club each Thursday at lunch time to encourage students who are having lessons, or any students who have some skills, to come and play together. These sessions will focus on learning and playing songs (no technical lesson structure), just an opportunity to learn songs together and have some fun with the ukuleles. These sessions are open to students in Years 3-12 due to the skills required.
