Before and After School Activities 

During the school term there will be activities happening every day of the week to keep your kids active before and after school.  Over the next few weeks you will see flyers promoting various activities, if you are interested please contact those organisations directly.  There are a couple of school run activities that all kids are encouraged to attend; running club and student circuit training. 

Running Club 

Running club is on Wednesday mornings starting at 8am (starts in week 2). For new families to Churchlands PS, running club is where students run laps around the oval earning points for their faction.  

Exercising in the mornings has many health benefits and is a great way to start the day. 

Some benefits include: 

  • improved physical and mental energy,  
  • a better night’s sleep
  • help maintain a healthy weight 
  • reach your fitness goals
  • enhance your metabolism.   

A reminder that mugs for Milo need to be placed on the table outside the undercover area before 8.15am.  Milo is a reward for the effort put in during running club.  

It is encouraged that students need to run at least 4 laps to get a Milo. Turning up late won’t allow enough time to get 4 laps done in time.
