Creative arts

Creative arts is mandatory for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. 

In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts where they learn to appreciate, compose, listen, make and perform.

Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives.


The creative arts are highly valued by the school community and have a significant place in the school curriculum. Creative arts programs are enhanced by extra-curricular activities organized by both staff and parents.

Visual arts forms an integral part of the curriculum covered in each classroom. This results in a colourful, inviting classroom environment and forms part of the preparation for our annual art show. Each student selects one of their pieces of work to be exhibited at this event and each class contributes a major work for display every lunchtime. There is always a myriad of ideas to be found and students proudly show their work to a range of visitors.
