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.


The school has comprehensive music programs available to students. While there are many people to thank for the successful running of these programs, particular mention must go to Lydia Burjan for all her amazing efforts and contribution.

Choir and Orchestra
Students are able to audition to become members of the school choir that performs at special school events, community events and the Combined Schools Spectacular, held annually at the Sydney Opera House.

The school orchestra performs at school events and is open to students from years 1-6.
