Art, Drama and Music
The Arts hold an important place in our school, providing a variety of opportunities for performance and visual arts across all aspects supporting our commitment to developing students creativity and enhancing their ability to think ‘outside the box’; an attribute greatly sought after across the school community.
At the end of each year we hold an art show that incorporates a school concert, a display of the students’ art work and a community picnic. These opportunities develop confidence in our students and we have seen significant improvement in both performance and audience skills.
Our whole school programs are complemented by several private music providers who teach piano, guitar and voice.
Our specialist Visual Arts teacher provides learning opportunities across a range of mediums and our students produce high quality, creative work throughout the year. There is a strong focus on creating artworks that reflect the individual style and interpretation of all students. With great pride, student pieces are displayed throughout the school, as well as in the wider community when the opportunity arises.
The Visual Arts program is regularly linked with other curriculum areas such as Science and other strands of The Arts, through cross-curriculum integrations adding greater meaning and relevance to student artistic learning activities.
