The Arts

The Arts are valued a critical part of student development.

Through the Arts students explore and develop their creativity, imagination and inventiveness. Visual Art is a compulsory study for students at Years 5 to 8. Beyond these years Visual Art is available as an elective through to VCE level. Major events which celebrate the Arts include the House Eisteddfod, Annual Productions, Art Shows and Public Speaking and Performance.

The annual productions are a key fixture in the school’s programme. They involve students in all aspects of production including acting, singing, dance and the many opportunities backstage including make-up, costume, sets and props.

Skill and confidence in public speaking is greatly valued at the school. Diverse opportunities are provided for students to develop as public speakers. School assemblies are focused on student presentations. The annual Creative Words evening is an opportunity for students to grow and learn as public speakers. The regular Prefect speeches at Friday assembly are celebrations of public speaking at a high level and also a powerful example to students and staff about the inspirational capacity of young people.
