Girls Pilates Program

Pilates is back again in 2019! We are looking to run another 12-week Pilates program for any girls in Years 7-12, with a qualified instructor to supplement APS training, as well as, supporting student wellbeing and cognitive awareness.

Benefits of Pilates include (and not limited to) an improvement in:

  • Muscle strength and tone
  • Flexibility
  • Core strength
  • Muscle control
  • Breathing
  • Posture
  • Balance and coordination
  • Concentration
  • Energy levels

The sessions will take place on Thursday mornings, 7:15am – 8am. There will be a small fee involved which is dependent on the number of students who sign up but would be approximately $5-$10/session. The 12-week program would run from 28 Feb - 13 June. If your daughter is interested, please have her complete the expression of interest form which was emailed earlier in the week. Please email Miss Garlick if you have any questions regarding the Pilates program.

Stepping into the future 

At the end of last Term, A.B. Paterson College Principal, Brian Grimes, announced that our College Board had made the decision to develop our next major building on our beautiful campus. The new building, which is yet to be named will sprawl three levels and be approximately 4,500m2 in size. To be located on the eastern side of our Hockey Oval, this magnificent building will be a state-of-the-art learning precinct.
