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 photography and visual design..
The Creative and Performing Arts Faculty are committed to providing exciting and engaging programs that challenge students to push their creativity and problem solving skills.
