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. The competitive arena awaits students with the chance to excel in public speaking, debating, web design, student newspapers, environmental management and much more.
