Active Community Program (ACP)

The Active Community Program at Balcombe Grammar School provides fortnightly participation for our Foundation to Year 8 students to engage in a vast range of activities both within our school, and our broader local community.

Whether it be a physical activity to get the blood pumping, a gentler approach through mindfulness, or simply sharing time with community groups, ACP sessions are focused on embedding the importance of both physical and emotional wellbeing, through exposure to a broad range of opportunities designed to highlight these key life skills.

We are so fortunate to live on the magnificent Mornington Peninsula with easy access to a myriad of locations via a short walk or a brief bus ride, enabling us to explore beyond the school gates. Some of our recent ACP activities include:

  • creating positive relationships in sharing the learning of ballroom dancing with visitors from local aged care facilities.
  • honing the sailing skills required to safely manage and navigate a vessel on the water.
  • visiting environmental organisations such as REPLAS, and creating awareness about how to close the recycling loop.
  • demonstrating resourcefulness in learning bush skills such as orienteering.
  • appreciating cultural practices of Tai Chi, exercising both mind and body.

We are extremely proud of our innovative community focused program, as it continues to create opportunities for our students to develop the fundamental skills necessary to form strong connections and thrive in our ever-changing world.
