The Arts

LANGUAGE AND CULTURE

Italian as a second Language is taught by a specialist  teacher for one lesson a week. It helps the children expand their understanding of different languages and cultures and provides a creative expression. Enjoy the video and listening to the children singing the days of the week in Italian.

THE ARTS

The Arts comprises five separate and distinct areas: dance, drama, media studies, visual arts and music. Each has its own language, techniques and conventions which offer a variety of means of expressive communication. These areas are important ways through which the vitality and culture of communities are shaped and transmitted. Students develop arts skills and knowledge that are central to their everyday lives.

MUSIC & DRAMA

All students participate in a weekly Music/ Drama lesson with a specialist teacher with different year levels focusing on different instruments. For example, Year 3 children learn to play the recorder and Year 4 learn the glockenspiel.

Students from Year 3 to Year 6 are invited to join in weekly Choir rehearsals and performances for Assemblies, Community events and Catholic Schools Music Festival.
