Performing Arts

 

Our broad Performing Arts program is lead by the very creative, Mrs Jane Shaw and includes drama, singing, music, dance, creative performances and the development of aural and listening skills.  Each student learns to recognise musical notation, play instruments and participate in our biannual whole school musical production. Students also have the opportunity to participate in our Instrumental Music program and Band program.

A private teacher instructs instrumental lessons  including clarinet, flute, saxophone, keyboard, guitar and piano.

Every second year we hold a whole school musical. The productions involve an enormous amount of work but the school community believes the children benefit greatly by developing self-esteem and confidence. Recent productions have included, ‘Kids at Sea’, ‘Peter Pan’, ‘A Kids Summer Night’s Dream’, ‘Super Kids’, and ‘Once upon a Musical’.

Students in Years 3-6 learn to play the recorder. Choir sessions operate on a weekly basis. Various public performances take place throughout the year.
