Special Programs

AUSLAN

One of the defining programs that make Airly Primary School unique is our AUSLAN program. Children learn sign language from Prep to Grade 6. It is taught in a fun way through games and songs. Adult AUSLAN classes are also held annually for interested community members.

ICT PROGRAM

Classrooms have an interactive whiteboard, enhancing students' access to global information through internet technology. All students have access to laptop computers, netbooks and iPads. Students teleconference with other local schools using a 'Polycom' unit.
Airly Primary School is an accredited eSmart school, teaching students and the school community to be cybersafe.

INTER-SCHOOL SPORT

Our school is involved at various times throughout the year in sporting competition with local schools. A variety of sports are played, and the emphasis is on enjoyment, participation and sportsmanship. We also participate in the annual swimming, athletics, and cross-country district sports events. The whole school takes part in fitness activities each morning.

Recent Sproting Schools grants have provided our students the opportunity to experience lawn bowls, gymnastics and hockey.

SWIMMING PROGRAM

As part of the educational policy of the school, a swimming program is conducted for a term. All children are expected to take part in this program which runs for approximately 8 weeks.


 PERFORMING ARTS

Airly Primary School is fortunate to be involved with Arts Centre Melbourne’s Partner Schools Initiative. This program provides students with opportunities to engage with high quality performing arts and creative programs. For 2015-2017 the school has free access to unlimited Arts Centre performances, which also includes workshops being held at the school and teacher professional development.

 SUSTAINABILITY

Airly PS is a ResourceSmart school. In 2016 we achieved the Core, Waste and Energy modules which meant we surpassed our School Environment Management Plan targets. In 2017 we will work towards achieving the Water and Biodiversity modules. Students have been involved in the Greening Australia Love Our Lakes project, Bug Blitz and Planet Ark National Tree Planting Day. Our student ‘Green Team’ promotes sustainability within the school community and records data about the school’s energy use.
