Launceston Church Grammar School is an active participant in future-focused community initiatives and we would like to invite your child to be a part of them as well. We are offering three distinct educational taster programmes, each free to attend.

Rock Club
With Mr Chris Brown 

In these exciting science sessions we will cover the theory of natural selection and how one species changes into another. See and touch actual fossils of long dead organisms. Rocks and minerals; a tale of heat and pressure. Learn how rocks and minerals are made and transformed by Earth processes.

Who: For children aged between 10 and 12 years old (maximum 15 participants)

Where: Senior Campus Science Laboratory

When: 6 November, 4pm to 5.30pm 
13 November, 4pm to 5.30pm


Mountain Bike Club
With Mr Ben Clark and Mr Peter Girling 

The Launceston Grammar Mountain Bike Club offers a specialised programme which provides participants with the techniques to develop and refine bike handling skills.


Our first session is geared towards confident riders with a focus on learning advanced skills.


For children who wish to give mountain bike riding a go – our second session is perfect for those who would like to learn basic mountain bike riding skills on a flat, safe and controlled environment.


Participants for both sessions will experience our purpose-built 2km mountain bike track. The bike track was built by well-respected trail designer and builder, Rob Potter, with volunteer support.


The Club is coordinated by Mountain Bike Australia accredited skills instructors. Participants are asked to bring a mountain bike, bike helmet and preferably gloves as minimum safety equipment.
