What we do...

 

At Myrrhee School we provide a vast array of quality learning experiences. Here are just some of the amazing opportunities that we provide...

Making Day

We love making and creating at Myrrhee School so much so that we dedicate one day a week to it. We provide opportunities for all students to develop confidence, creativity, and interest in science, technology, engineering, math, literacy, art, and learning as a whole through making. Fortunately we have volunteers from the community to teach students a range of skills including Welders, Sculpters, Woodworkers, Winemakers, Painters, Jewellers, Sewers, Cooks and many others.

1:1 Technology

Here at Myrrhee all students have access to up to date technology to ensure we stay ahead of the game in technology. Students in the upper grade each have access to their own iPad and the online portfolio system Stile to organize and present their school work.

Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden

The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program aims to change the way children think about food and to teach students how to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh, nutritious food. At Myrrhee we have a beautiful vegie garden which we use to cook with every Monday – a great way to start the week!

Bluearth

Bluearth is an Australian Wide Organisation who are devoted to active living and improving kids’ physical, social and emotional health. Bluearth not only addresses the physical health of children, but also improves self-awareness, focus, self-esteem, resilience. And team building.

 

Vine to Wine

Learning in the heart of Wine Country, students are taken through the process of the winemaking industry learning valuable mathematics, science and communication skills.

 

Camps and Excursions

We believe that there is so much out there in the world to learn and we don’t let the four walls of the classroom stops us from getting out there and taking part in it! We have a range of camps and excursions including Sailing Camp, Snow Trips, Coastal Camps, City experiences, and many more!

Living Healthy!

At Myrrhee we have a strong focus on healthy lifestyles and developing the whole child. We focus on nutrition through the kitchen garden, physical development through daily exercise and Bluearth and mental health through our circle time sessions. We also have access to all the usual resources of other schools such as speech therapy, psychologists, school nurses, etc.

Specialist Classes

Here at Myrrhee we have a number of specialist programs including, Art, Italian, Library and Music ensuring that students have a range of different learning opportunities to allow for success.
