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.

  001 Club

  With Dr Cameron Rogers 

 What do a common party trick, 1s and 0s, and learning to count to 1023 on your fingers have in common? Come and find out! In this term's mathematics club, we will be looking  at the binary counting system employed by all computers and what it can teach us about the history and beauty of mathematics. There are 10 types of people in the world - those who know binary and those who don't! (If you don't understand that joke but would like to, then you'd better come.)   


Who: For children aged between 10 and 12 years (maximum 15 participants)
Where: Senior Campus 
When: 21 August, 4pm to 5.30pm
28 August, 4pm to 5.30pm

Sci-Fly Club

With Dr Cameron Rogers 

One of the most crucial responsibilities of a pilot is to ensure they have correctly balanced the aircraft prior to take off. In this term's science club we look at the physics behind calculating an aircraft's center of gravity, and the effect it has on the safety and stability of every aircraft during flight. It's all about force, torque and aerodynamics (and is hence completely scintillating!). Attendees will examine the theory, conduct experiments with free flight gliders and the school's virtual reality flight simulator and learn to interpret the weight and balance charts used by real pilots of light aircraft. 

Who: For children aged between 10 and 12 years (maximum 15 participants) 
Where: Senior Campus
When: 7 August, 4pm to 5.30pm
14 August, 4pm to 5.30pm  

Mini Shredders Club

With Mr Ben Clark and Mr Peter Girling 

This specialised programme provides participants with the opportunity to develop basic bike handling skills using approved games and techniques in a safe environment. Participants will experience our purpose-built track so that they can apply what they’ve learned. Our track was built by well-respected trail designer and builder, Rob Potter, with volunteer support. 

The Club will be 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.

Who: For children aged between 10 and 12 years with a skill level of beginner to intermediate (maximum 16 participants)
Where: Senior Campus
When: 4 September, 3.50pm to 5.00pm
11 September, 3.50pm to 5.00pm
18 September, 3.50pm to 5.00pm
