Many opportunities exist for students to participate in extra-curricular activities at Mil Lel.
Students participate in 2 Sports Days in Term 1; our own Internal Sports Day and then a few weeks afterwards, we join with 6 other small schools to compete in the Small Schools District Sports Day which is held at Blue Lake Sports Park. Students in Yr 3-5 are able to participate in out of school hours sports which include T-Ball, Football, Netball, Soccer and Hockey. Our school is also an Auskick Centre. Upper Primary students have the opportunity to participate in various carnivals during the year and can choose to try out for various SAPSASA teams also.
We encourage participation in the Mt Gambier Eisteddfod and have students involved in a number of categories such as public speaking, music and debating.
Students in Years 5, 6 and 7 have the opportunity to participate in Choir. This involves our students joining with other schools to form a choir which performs at the South East Music Festival in Term 4.
Students in Year 6 and 7 participate in a week long camp to Canberra every 2 years (odd years, e.g. 2017, 2019). They join with students from neighbouring small schools and visit The Australian War Memorial, Parliament House, Questacon, Royal Australian Mint, Telstra Tower, Australian Institute of Sport and National Botanical Gardens to name a few.
On alternate even years, we have a school camp which is held over 3 days/2 nights. Destinations have included The Grampians, Port Fairy and Cape Bridgewater.
Jump Rope For Heart Demonstration Team
Students in Year 5, 6 and 7 are able to try out to be a member of the school’s skipping demonstration team. Each year they travel to various schools to support and promote other schools’ involvement in Jump Rope For Heart Day which raises money for the Heart Foundation.
Every 2 years our school participates in the Mt Gambier Christmas Parade. This is a fantastic community event and students look forward to this opportunity.
