A number of specialist and extra-curricular programs are offered at Delacombe Primary School , providing opportunities for students to pursue their interests and develop their skills and talents.
The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen garden program operates at the school, offering students the opportunity to work in the garden and kitchen each week, growing, harvesting and sharing food and learning about environmental issues and being physically active. Students also work in the school yard to upgrade the existing gardens, develop new gardens and introduce new projects (recycling, worm farm, chicken run, vegetable garden etc).
Weekly Breakfast Club proudly supported by Ballarat South Rotary Club supplying students with a healthy breakfast to begin the day every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday between 8.15am and 8.50am.
Camps and Excursions
Here at Delacombe we offer a comprehensive, school-wide camps and excursions program.
A highlight of the school has been the annual Boys, Books, Blokes and Bytes program which was recognised as a finalist in the 2011 Victorian Education Excellence Awards. This program works in partnership with the regional library, Phoenix Community College and the University of Ballarat. The program brings together boys and their fathers, or a significant male role model, with the aim of boosting the boys' literacy and enjoyment of reading
'Boys, Blokes, Books and Bytes'
All students can participate in after school programs such as Sporting Schools to learn new skills while staying fit and healthy.
