School assemblies are held once a week on Fridays at 3pm in either the courtyard or BER. Assemblies showcase some of our budding musicians weekly, occasionally include dance performances and very often have sports reports. The Hampton Achievers certificate recognises children and adults who have produced a personal best performance, have shown commendable effort or perhaps are deserving of special mention on grounds of kindness or citizenship. The academic excellence awards recognise children who have demonstrated a particular aptitude, have achieved outstanding results or having made significant progress in a specific curriculum area. We strongly encourage children to address the assembly with news from their classrooms, describe a special report on camp or promote a local initiative or fundraiser that they have organised. Parents and family members are most welcome to attend. Generally assemblies conclude at 3.25pm.

Junior/Senior School Council
The JSC/ SRC are a group who are made up of representatives from each grade in the school, Prep to year 6. They work as teams to identify issues around the school and the local community that we as a school community can help with. The issues can be school based like the issues of lost property management or the school ground up keep. Or they can be external to the school, connecting with a local charity to support. The students are encouraged to identify areas of concern and then to take ownership of ways that they as a group can involve the wider school community in supporting their endeavors.
