Below is a list of school activities our pupils take part in.
Yoga in Stanhope Street
Katarina delivers a fun way of escaping classroom learning to enrich the holistic development of each child. In Stanhope Street Primary school we have incorporated story with yoga to explore an inclusive, mindful exploration of body movement in a unique way. Yoga for children has a huge impact on the social, emotional and physical development of the child. As a result of these benefits, the children at Stanhope Street Primary have more self-confidence, better self-esteem, develop skills to regulate their emotions so as to lead a much happier healthier life.

Music plays a special role in our school. Children are provided with the opportunity to learn various instruments, take class recorder lessons, join the school band and sing in the school choir. Both class teachers and outside professionals facilitate these musical activities during the school day.
