Katherine South Primary School prides itself on the variety of learning opportunities offered to students outside classrooms.
The extra-curricular activities range from sport and the performing arts, to coding and ICT.
The Katherine South Rugby Academy is a sporting program for primary years' students established under the academy coach and 5/6 teacher Tim East.
Nominated students from years 4 to 6 participate in programs throughout the year, and year 3 students join in Term 3.
Principal Karen Taylor said this year 94 students participated in the Rugby Academy weekly, with an additional 40 students from transition to Year 2 who took park in special events and training sessions.
"Academy sessions are broken into boys' and girls' groups and target skills-based training and fitness, sport specific training in touch football, rugby league and rugby union and intra-school round robin competitions in touch football, Touch7s, rugby league and league tag," she said.
"The highlight this year was the girls' touch football trip to Singapore in October where the KSPS team competed in the Clifford Chance Cup. In 2019, the academy had seven students represent the Territory - one for AFL, one for rugby league and five for touch football. Plans are underway for a boys' rugby trip to NSW early in 2020.
"The Katherine South Dance Academy, which has operated for two years, allows participants to learn three different styles of dance each year. This year it has been Salsa - Latin American-based, Street - Downtown New York-based, and Modern Expressive or Contemporary Dance.

"The academy has more than 60 students, both boys and girls. Students participate in a number of different experiences and performances during the year.
"These have included watching the Melbourne City Ballet perform, workshops with the Melbourne City Ballet, performing in the Katherine BEAT, the Harmony Day assembly, Children's Week community celebrations, and at our awards night."
