Creative Arts

Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA)

In Creative Arts, students explore a variety of expressive art forms such as Dance, Drama, Music and Visual Arts. Through the study of Creative Arts, students learn to appreciate, compose, listen, create and perform.

Students study 100 hours of mandatory Music and Visual Arts in Stage 4 with the opportunity to elect Dance and Music as an additional course. In Stages 5 and 6 students have the opportunity to extend their knowledge and skills by choosing elective subjects in Dance, Drama, Music and Visual Arts. Within elective subjects students are provided with personalised, rich and in-depth learning experiences that encourage subject expertise and creative thinking.

Additionally, the Creative Arts faculty provides opportunities for students to participate in a number of co-curricular activities including dance and music ensembles, choir and art club.

There are two available extension classes in Creative and Performing Arts for incoming year 7 students. Please read through the information provided in the application links for both the Talented Music Program (Band) and the Creative Arts Enrichment Program.
