In Music classes students learn to use musical concepts and vocabulary through interactive singing, listening and writing activities. The exploration of Sound, Pitch, Rhythm, Orchestration and many other topics is an ongoing process of active participation through which students discover and expand their knowledge of the Musical World both present and past. 

Drama is recognised as a subject that benefits the overall learning and development of children. There are three main strands to the effective use of drama: a means to build children’s confidence and develop their social skills; a teaching approach for exploring cross-curricular subjects and issues, and an aid in developing children’s performance and self-presentation skills.

Dance is a compulsory component of our Physical Education program. All children have the opportunity to experience creative expression and visual performance through this medium. A variety of themes are explored inspired by music and imagery.
