Year 7 Activities

Art Club

Art Club is held every Tuesday and Thursday at lunchtime.  This club provides students with the opportunity to develop their painting and drawing skills.


Chess Club

The PSC Chess Club was formed in 2012; the main goal of the program is to provide a fun and intellectually stimulating social activity.  There are several studies that have been conducted which prove the vast benefits of having a chess program in schools. The benefits include:

  • Chess help students to concentrate and develop
  • Chess creates a pattern of thinking that helps in problem solving.
  • It accommodates all levels of learners
  • A learning environment based on games builds confidence and social groups

Pakenham Secondary College also conducts Regional Chess Tournaments three times a year; several government and non-government schools participate. On average, in any tournament, there are around 85 students competing. Everyone is welcome to join the club and it is run by Mr De Lima and Mr Ampongan every recess Monday to Friday.
