Lunch clubs are made available to students through the dedication of the OLA staff to positive wellbeing. All clubs are offered in the student/staff lunch breaks with the exception of running club, which is offered, before school. Lunch clubs are a place where students can share common interests, their talents and skills with other students. It also supports the development of social skills in smaller groups and many new friendships are developed.
Throughout the year, the children at OLA have had the opportunity to be a member of the school Chess Club. The Club meets weekly during lunchtime. During each meeting the children learn the rules of the game and practise their skills with other children.
Walk and Talk Club
Once a week at 8:15am all the students are invited to participate in a social walk & talk Club. Time for a chat, walk or run with old friends and new friends! A great way to improve fitness and stamina. Parents and carers are welcome to join in.
