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.

Students can unleash their creative flair through dance and drama performances, competitions, exhibitions and enrichment programs.

Students with particular interests and talents can participate in local, regional and statewide activities in visual arts, music, dance and drama.


Teachers lead students in choir and solo performances. Students perform in several events throughout the year  including at school functions and in the community.


Mrs Pauline Wellfare is our in-house potter. She works with groups of students in the technique, creating visually appealing and useful items for display and use. Mrs Welfare works with the school on larger projects in consultation with school and commnity groups. 

Visual arts

Teachers provide students with many opportunities to develop their artistic talents and to learn about art in the classroom through the visual arts strand of the Creative Arts Syllabus. Students produce many high-quality artworks which are displayed in the classrooms and around the school, and may also have opportunities to submit artworks to local shows and exhibitions.
