Performing Arts Academy program provides a creative and challenging
curriculum to grow students’ artistic abilities.

The enriched arts curriculum includes workshops, excursions
and performances. Performing Arts Academy students are also encouraged to
participate in extra-curricular activities, such as the musical and Arts
Showcase. This extended course also enables students to develop and refine
their skills, knowledge and understanding of the Arts, which will benefit them
greatly as they transition into the middle and senior phases of study.
As well as the physical and
emotional benefits that come with studying the Performing Arts, students will
exercise their higher order thinking skills through analysis and
evaluation. Assessment is both practical
and written providing students with opportunities to develop their written
communication skills. Students can
choose to study the Arts throughout high school and multiple pathways open up
in Senior to cater for students who want to progress to tertiary education.
The Arts are a vital part of our
culture and curriculum. A recent study
by the University of Sydney found that ‘students who are involved in the arts have higher school
motivation, engagement in class, self-esteem, and life satisfaction.’ According
to lead author, Professor Andrew Martin: “The study shows that school
participation in the arts can have positive effects on diverse aspects
of students’ lives.”Page ImageImage Caption
