Creative arts

In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts.

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.

We take great pride in our prowess in music and the creative and performing arts. We have many talented individuals and ensemble performers who are showcased at our regular celebration assemblies.

Students are encouraged to enter their work in creative showcases outside of school, as well as our annual showcases Seen and Heard and Dramarama which display Visual Arts, T.A.S and Drama works.
