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.

Paint Pot

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.  

Ensemble and band

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. David teaches for 2 hours per week. Students perform at school assemblies, presentation and special events and in outside competitions and venues.

Choir

Our school has choir for all students in Stage 2 and Stage 3. The choirs perform at school and community events as well as at regional music fesitvals such as the Shoalhaven Music Festival.
