At Gleneagles we believe in having a variety of organised lunchtime activities available to students. So no matter what interests and skills our students have, there is something for everyone to participate in.
One night a week Gleneagles operates a ‘homework club’ with tutors and school staff available to assist students with their homework or class work. On the strength of this, our program has continued to grow with 10% of the student population that is over 100 students attend Homework club each week!
The game of Chess has fascinated humans for almost 2000 years. It is an exercise which develops mental abilities used throughout life: concentration, critical thinking, abstract reasoning, problem solving, pattern recognition, strategic planning and creativity, to name a few.
Through chess we learn how to analyse a situation by focusing on important factors and by eliminating distractions. We learn to devise creative solutions and put a plan into action.
It is through the Chess Club that students have the opportunity to further develop many these skills and become avid Chess players. Students also have the opportunity to play in interschool tournaments.
