Clubs and Clinics (Term 1, 2024)

Abbotsford Primary School offers an exciting range of after school clinics for students to broaden their interests and participation in group activities. Most activities run from 3:45-4:45pm by external providers. (Note: Supervision is provided by school staff between 3:30-3:45pm and parents are not required to pick students up until 4:45pm)

 

Make a Difference Fund (MADF)

Abbotsford Primary School will utilise its "Make a Difference Fund" (MADF) to support students who would otherwise not be able to participate in after school clinics.

 

MADF is an optional contribution families are able to make with the intention of supporting fellow APS students. Students who wish to access the MADF must be eligible recipients of the Camp, Sports and Excursion Fund (CSEF).

 

Eligible students can access the MADF for one term each school year and for one clinic of their choice. Each term, the School will specify the number of MADF (Free) spots available for each clinic. Students need to sign up via APS Reception (see Marianna).

 

If a MADF (Free) spot is not available, eligible students may:

  • choose to pay for a sports clinic using their CSEF credit;
  • pay the concession rate (if available).
