Children are inherently creative and use higher order thinking and problem solving in the Arts. From a Christian perspective, the study of the Arts can be profoundly linked to its place in the Christian life, by giving expression to imagination, creative and critical thinking and initiative by affirming the validity of each student’s God given gifts and potential.
The College provides a wide scope of extensive opportunities for specific Arts learning across the curriculum and includes Media, Drama, Music and the Visual Arts. It encourages involvement in and appreciation of the Arts from a Christian foundation, which includes an annual College Art Exhibition, bi-annual College Drama productions, annual theatrical performances, musical recitals and performances and film viewing.
The Arts life of the College begins as early as Year 1 with Specialist Art and Drama teachers and then continues right through into upper school where students are introduced to stimulating,and enriching activities in the Arts forms of Drama, Dance, Music, Media and the Visual Arts by Specialist Secondary teachers. Arts programmes are supported by guest Artists-In-Residence and professional visiting artists across all of the College Arts. This furthers students understanding of the arts in Australian society, the wider community and across cultural groups.
