The Performing Arts program at East Waikiki Primary School is dynamic and constantly evolving.

It provides all children with the musical and drama knowledge that is part of the curriculum, but it also gives ample opportunity for those that are especially interested or gifted to explore their talents and to progress at their own rate.

Physical Education: Grant Pilling (Tuesdays) and Robyn Henwood (Wednesdays – Fridays)

East Waikiki provides opportunities for students to participate and compete in a wide array of sporting activities organised by our Physical Education specialist teacher.

In 2019 students competed in such sports as football, soccer, netball, tee-ball, basketball, flag-belt rugby, swimming, athletics and cross country running. These sports will play a vital role in our 2020 Physical Education Program.

At East Waikiki Primary School, we are focused on providing a comprehensive sporting environment that gives students necessary exercise and enhances both gross and fine motor skills.

All students from Pre-Primary to Year 6 are taught by our specialist Phys Ed teacher for at least one 50 minute lesson each week and for one ‘Block Sport’ session for 45 minutes weekly.

Lessons for junior school students focus closely on fundamental movement skills (throwing, catching, climbing, balancing, hopping and body locomotion).

Languages other than English (LOTE): Manjeet Ahluwahlia

Children in Year 3-5 have one, 50 minute session of Indonesian language instruction per week with our specialist Indonesian LOTE teacher. The program focus is on an appreciation and acceptance of a different culture as well as an ability to communicate effectively in a language other than English. In 2020, we are privileged and excited to have as our official sister school Sekolah Dasar Negri 4 Kuta on the island of Bali. Our students will be communicating on a regular basis with those of our sister school.
