Stanthorpe State School provides students with many opportunities to participate in activities and programs that are extra to classroom curriculum.
Small groups of students have also participated in enrichment programs, such as the Opti-MINDS (2016) and Brainways 'The Quest' (2015) team challenges. In our first year of entering The Quest, our team made it into the state finals in Brisbane!
Our Arts program provides opportunities for students to optionally participate in extra arts activities, either before school or during lunchtimes. Students can currently participate in choir, drama, dance, or recorder groups.
The most easily accessible extra-curricular program is the Instrumental Music Program. Music contributes to the artistic, cultural, intellectual, psychological and social development of the child. In our instrumental music program, students receive weekly lessons, participate in the school concert band or string ensemble, and have the opportunity to attend regional instrumental music camps.
