Latrobe Valley Eisteddfod
Each year under the direction of our music teacher, children in the 3 /4 Learning Hub perform at the Latrobe Valley Eisteddfod in the choral singing section. This gives students exposure to performing on stage, in front of a large audience. Children in the Lunchtime Recorder Group perform in the instrumental section.

Children have opportunities to participate in Physical Education and Sport through:
- the Victorian School Sports Association at a local, regional and state level.

- their Learning Hubs who participate in four weeks of tennis lessons with a visiting coach.
- attending swimming lessons as part of the curriculum. Qualified instructors at the Morwell Leisure Centre run this program.
- netball, basketball, football, soccer, cricket and cross country competitions.

English as Additional Language (EAL)
We offer a range of supports for students from Non-English speaking backgrounds with small group work to assist in their development of English, while still allowing them to access learning opprtunities with their peers.

Active Kids Program
Morwell Central Primary School run a very successful Active Kids Program, which gives students access to learn and try a wide range of different sports and activities. Active Kids activities vary from term to term and include Arts and Craft, Dancing, Computers, Basketball and lots more.
The Eco-Kids are a group of students who meet together weekly because of their strong desire to look after our environment and to spread the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle message.
The Eco-Kids work closely with Resource Smart. Resource Smart Schools is an award-winning Victorian Government program that assists schools to embed sustainability in everything they do. The Eco-Kids also work closely with Latrobe City's Sustainability Education Officer who assists the students with keeping our Worm Farms healthy and encouraging good sustainability practises throughout the MCPS.
