Activities

At Clinton State School we offer a number of extra-curricular activities to complement our students' academic education.
Academic Competitions  
At Clinton we pride ourselves in providing students with opportunities to demonstrate their capabilities in external competitions.  We are exceptionally proud of current and past students who have achieved outstanding results in the following competitions.

 International Competitions and Assessment for Schools (ICAS)
ICAS provide opportunities for all students to gain a measure of their own achievement in external assessment situations.  They provide teachers, parents and students with comprehensive reporting in results in Computer Skills, English, Mathematics, Science, Spelling and Writing. These competitions are held annually in Terms 2 and 3, for students in Years Two to Six. 
Each student receives a Student Report and a certificate which is awarded on the following basis:
High Distinction - The top 1% of participants
Distinction - The next 10% of participants
Credit - The next 25% of participants
Merit - The next 10% of participants
Participation - For all remaining participants 
  
Australian Mathematics Competition
Each year, teachers nominate children in Years Three to Six to participate in the Australian Mathematics Competition.   This is a school funded initiative, introduced to engage further our very capable mathematicians, and reward them for their academic achievement in this area. This competition provides students and parents with a full statistical breakdown on basic skills and problem solving. 
 
Music Program 
Choir
This area is still under construction. To be updated.
Instrumental Music 
Instrumental music teachers visit our school weekly to teach instruments of the orchestra.   Children are withdrawn from normal classes for music lessons and receive group tuition.  String lessons are available from Year 3. Brass, percussion and woodwind lessons are available from Year 4.  Some string, woodwind and brass instruments may be hired from the school for the first year of instruction.  Information about this program is available from the Deputy Principal or Music Specialist.
Children are encouraged to join the Concert Band and Strings Orchestra when they have developed sufficient skills. A full dress uniform is required for students who are members of either the Concert Band or Strings Orchestra.  This uniform is worn whenever either group performs. Details about the uniform are available from the office staff, members of the Music Support Group or the Deputy Principal.
Please note there is a cost involved with participation in the instrumental program.
 
Clinton’s Got Talent
 In Term Four of each year, Clinton State School Student Council hosts the annual ‘Clinton’s Got Talent’ quest.  The event provides a great opportunity for students to exhibit their Performing Arts talent, creativity, concept development and execution, as well as presentation skills and team work in the case of group performances.
 
The competition is set in a lively, low competitive environment and is open to all students from Prep to year 6.
 
Parental Permission
Schools are required to obtain written parental consent for all students under the age of 18 years participating in any extracurricular activities that require students to leave or be absent from the school.
