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.
This term in Paint Pot we have looked at shells from our natural environment, developing an understanding of how shells are formed and how they grow. Students began with observational drawings,creating designs and artworks using line, shape, colour, direction, repetition, texture, and compositional strategies. We hope you enjoy the wonderful artworks created by your talented children.
The Paint Pot program provides every student at our school with weekly creative arts lessons provided by specialist art teachers. Students' art work is displayed throughout the school and community.

The band is a parent co-ordinated opportunity for students in Years 3 to 6. The school band is conducted by David Rooney from the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music.
