Weekday Breakfast Clubs are run at both Junior Campuses throughout the year.
Weekday Breakfast Club
The free breakfast clubs run every Monday to Friday 8.00–8.45 am throughout the school year and provide a variety of healthy breakfast foods and beverages.
All students from Years 7 to 10 are welcome to attend.
A friendly atmosphere is provided where students are welcome to pop in for a quick juice, Milo or linger longer to sample the hot food which is freshly cooked, or have a more traditional breakfast of cereal and toast with friends
The ability to work in a team, speak in public, and perform under pressure are all valuable life skills that are fostered on a regular basis though the activity of debating.
Debating affords students the opportunity to test their awareness of the issues that face our community. This involves participating within a team to tackle a topic from either an affirmative or negative point of view, competing against other schools within the Essendon Region.
Students who participate in debating often find it is of enormous benefit to both the development of their leadership, public speaking, and improvisational skills. Debating is multi-disciplinary: debating techniques can be used in all subject areas. its benefits extend through all aspects of the school curriculum.
Formal debates are held 5 times a year, with the opportunity for successful teams to continue competing in state playoffs.
All students who are interested in being part of debating at Copperfield should speak to their home campus’ debating coordinator.
Each Friday at lunchtime, the Sydenham Campus, students participate in a range of board games in a relaxing, friendly environment.
Run by Paulina from ‘Elevate’ and supported by Kellie from our Wellbeing team, students can come in small groups or come alone as there is always a game to join in with. Popular games are always Connect 4, Chess, Jenga and Uno – but we look forward to testing out some new games shortly too.
