Lunchtime Clubs

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.

  • The Fitness Centre, open four lunchtimes a week gives senior students access to exercise equipment found in a modern gym
  • Music facilities – students take advantage of the music space being available for practise.
  • Drama Club – offers students with a passion for performing a chance to share this with others
  • The library is open and full every day with students working, reading and on computers.
  • Book Club
  • Digital Media Centre with 25 Apple computers is also open most lunchtime for those students with an interest in film, animation or photography. Students have access to digital still and video cameras, industry standard software to manipulate the captured images and create their own digital films.
  • Student Activities & Leadership (SALT) run a range of activities that change every term and may include Wii games, rubric cube challenges, indoor soccer competitions and chess club as well as lending out sports equipment that can be used outside.

After School

Homework Club

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!

Chess Club

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.
