Specialist Programs

Performing Arts

Banksia Grove Primary School has been conducting a Performing Arts program since 2011. Our Performing Arts program is run by Mr John Donnelly. Some of the highlights are the Community Songs which are sung by the entire school during our weekly assemblies and the Bi annual performances that our senior students are involved in, which have included High School Musical Jr, Aladdin Jr and Alice in Wonderland Jr.

Physical Education

Our positive interschool results are a great reflection of the long term benefits of the Phys Ed program being run by Mr Maurice Palmer. The increased participation rate of our students across events such as our faction carnival and Jump Rope for Heart is an excellent indicator as to across the board improvement in students’ skills and confidence. Mr Palmer focuses on providing students with the skills and pathways to enjoy lifelong fitness.


In 2015 the school appointed Mrs Amy Dixon to the position of specialist teacher of Science. It proved to be a popular decision as student feedback indicated that Science had become one of the top 3 highlights of our school.
Mrs Dixon organises engaging excursions and incursions to compliment the hands on activities within her class.

LOTE (Italian)

The LOTE program is delivered by Mrs Patrizia Chambers. The lessons aim to give our students a sound understanding of not only the Italian language but also the culture and diversity of Italy.
