Chess was introduced as an optional part of our school’s extra curricular program in 2007. Lessons are provided each Friday during Chess Club in our School Library, with chess ‘guru’ Jim Cannon, teaching students strategies and tactics to improve their playing. Students are provided opportunities to compete in district competitions, with Viewbank PS hosting two such tournaments each year. Over the years, our school has placed in the top three schools in Victoria, a performance we are suitably proud of.



Viewbank students who learn an instrument are encouraged to join our Junior or Senior band. Our bands regularly perform and showcase their skills at a variety of school events such as, The Bi-Annual Art Show.

Code club

Each week students from Year 2 to 6 are invited to participate in ‘Code Club’ during lunchtime on Fridays in the School Library. Students will develop and further their coding knowledge through different activities and projects using a range of resources.
