Creative and Performing Arts


The Creative and Performing Arts are an essential and vibrant part of our school, offering experiences within and beyond the classroom. In each subject we aim to position the students as creative artists, equipping them with skills, techniques, and experiences to enable their expression in their chosen form.

Engagement in the Creative and Performing Arts benefits students academically, personally, and creatively. Researchers have found that students who are involved in the Creative and Performing Arts have higher school motivation, engagement in class, and academic aspirations, as well as increased self-esteem, life satisfaction, and sense of meaning and purpose. Engagement in the arts also increases student levels of creativity. Not only does creativity enrich our lives and form a fundamental part of what makes us human, but politicians, educators, and business leaders worldwide have realized that creativity and innovation are central to business leadership and economic success.

As part of their academic program students in Years 7 and 8 study Music and Visual Arts. Elective courses in Drama, Music, Visual Arts, Visual Design, and Photographic and Digital Media are offered to students studying for their ROSA (Years 9 and 10). Students are also offered Drama, Music, Visual Arts, Visual Design, Photography, Ceramics, and VET Entertainment as courses to study in Years 11 and 12.

Studying the creative arts, students 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.

Students must study 100 hours of both music and visual arts during Years 7 to 10. They also have an opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills in other art forms through elective subjects including drama, dance, photography and visual design. Students can then select from a range of courses in Years 11 to 12.
