Beyond the Classroom

At Living Waters Lutheran College, we encourage our students to be active participants within our community and are committed to providing co-curricular and extra-curricular activities to all students throughout the year. We aim to provide a number of academic and sporting opportunities to suit a range of interests and abilities, and to encourage students to try new activities.

Students in Years 2 to 6 are offered the opportunity to challenge and extend themselves in a range of programs, including Working like a Mathematician, the Challenge island STEM series, EV3 Mindstorm: Coding and Robotics and the opportunity to represent the school at the Optiminds Competition at Curtin University.  

Students can also participate in extra activities during the school day, including the Chess Club and Homework Club.

We offer individuals the opportunity to join our well-established Primary Choir who perform at many of our whole College events. Individual tuition occurs during school hours for a variety of different musical instruments. This year, we are pleased to introduce Japanese Taiko drumming to our Primary students.

The College has an active Arts Department and have previously presented their work at the Rockingham Sculpture by the Sea event. A weekly Drawing Club also encourages our budding young artists.

The College is delighted to showcase the talents of our Primary school students at the annual Christmas Carol Concert.

The College provides activities and experiences beyond the classroom to encourage and support academic, social and personal development. Participating in camps and excursions gives students the opportunity to interact with their teachers and peers in a new environment that promotes resilience, self-esteem, responsibility, communication and social interaction while also providing academic experiences. These camps range from overnight stays to a three-day camp in Busselton.

Excursions and incursions vary from year to year depending on the curriculum topics covered in each year group.

Living Waters Lutheran College supports the overseas aid and resettlement agency of the Lutheran Church of Australia, Australian Lutheran World Service (ALWS). We provide multiple opportunities throughout the year for students to develop the skills and understanding to aid people less fortunate than themselves.  Students participate in an ALWS Day which focuses on challenges and hands-on activities which allow students and teachers to consider the difficulties people living in poverty can face due to war, economics and discrimination. Students are invited to participate in a number of fundraising activities throughout the school year.

Each year brings with it a variety of activities available to students. The College offers a range of Co-curricular activities including, soccer, gymnastics, cricket, softball, swimming and cross country running. Students participate in Inter-school events through the Catholic Primary Schools Sports Association (CPSSA). This also includes a Lightning, Basketball and League Tag Carnival.
