Our aim is to deliver an exciting and engaging Visual Arts Program that enables students to develop skills, techniques and processes. All students participate in sessions focusing on skill development in particular or combined areas, in accordance with their developmental stage.
By enabling students to experiment with a broad range of materials and styles, we endeavour to nurture individual expression and creativity, cultivate aesthetic awareness and develop an understanding of the elements and principles of art and design.
Participation in the Visual Arts Program fosters group participation, problem solving, confidence, persistence, time management, responsibility, risk taking and personal pride.
All students participate in a Performing Arts Program for one semester each year. Activities are based on expressing and exploring ideas and presenting and performing. They will focus on Drama, Music and Singing.
