Students at Horizon attend external excursions relevant to components of the learning curriculum. From Year 4, students experience learning outside of the classroom in the form of school camps.  Camps provide children with the opportunity to experience independence.  Camps pose challenges that when overcome, contribute to a child's resilience and self confidence when facing other unfamiliar situations in the future.


From Foundation, Horizon provides students with the opportunity for private music tuition in any of the following instruments:-

- Piano

- Flute

- Clarinet

- Voice (singing lessons)

Tuition can be arranged by contacting the office.


From Foundation, students experience learning beyond the classroom in the form of school excursions and performances.  These experiences occur throughout the year and compliment the learning curriculum in the classroom. Excursions provide an opportunity for students to build on what they have learnt in the classroom and put it into practice. It provides students with the understanding that learning can happen outside of the classroom environment.


Prefects are a group of Christian student leaders from Years 10 - 12.  As student leaders, Prefects are encouraged in their leadership and receive training and mentoring by staff and others.  Prefects make decisions about issues that are put forward to them by the student body, other organisations and councils in the school community.  As a Prefect, students uphold the schools ethos and commit themselves to the role by displaying good moral behaviour, presenting themselves well and generally striving to do well in all aspects of school life.




Transition from Kindergarten to School

Making the transition from kindergarten to school is both an exciting and daunting step for your child.  Horizon provides a transition program ensuring a happy and successful start to school.  Your child will experience school life through a number of classroom visits in the term prior to starting school.  This provides children with an understanding of what to expect when they come to school.


The Process of Transition

Our Foundation teachers visit the kindergartens in the district during Term 4 of each year.  This gives the children an opportunity to meet and familiarise themselves with their future teachers.  Kindergarten children that are enrolled to attend school at the beginning of the new year are invited to attend a series of school visits during Term 4.  These visits provide the new children with an opportunity to experience a typical day at school.  They begin with short school visits once a week in the mornings consisting of lesson time and play time.  The visit sessions continue over a five week period, with visits increasing to twice weekly and up to a full day session.  By slowly introducing your child to school in this manner, they are very aware of what to expect on their first day as a student at Horizon.
