At Bourchier we love our lunch breaks. We learn hard during class time but we also love having a longer break during recess and lunch. The first recess we have starts at 10:55am and runs until 11:20am and our longer outside lunch break runs from 1:30pm to 2:15pm.
At Bourchier Primary we are very lucky to have a massive five and a half acres of designated space for kids to play and explore. We have two large oval spaces that can be used for a variety of sports including, soccer, footy, gymnastics and cricket. Two large basketball/netball courts, a cricket net, sandpits, gardens and a huge variety of playgrounds give kids many options for how to spend their break times. We know that students learn in different ways and we don't want learning to stop just because we our out at recess or lunch, so we are continuing to design our flexible spaces that can work in different ways. It makes breaks exciting, creative and fun. There are areas for learning individually, learning in groups, being active and socialising.
We also have a variety of lunchtime activities and clubs that cater for many different interests and keep the learning opportunities happening all day long! We have Choir, Bourchier's Junior and Senior Rock bands, tech club, chess groups, art groups, gardening groups Dance sessions and organised sports tournaments all happening at lunchtimes. Lunchtimes at Bourchier really are a hive of learning and fun!
