Overview​

The performing arts department at our school is an exciting, vibrant, highly interactive, department that offers a range of subjects and extra curriculum. We believe in the power of the performing arts to support deep learning and engagement. We also know from research that the performing arts provide a range of pathways to careers, Tafe and universities. Creative intelligence leads to better focus and commitment  which boosts motivation and outcomes in all other areas. Our department was an integral part of the research for the YConnect Project which confirmed that the arts can change lives, create connections to learning, and a sense of belonging to school. 


Our school still incorporates a model that uses artists embedded in curriculum to extend pedagogy and learning. We include musical artists, circus artists, actors, physical theatre/movement artists, comedians, directors and playwrights to enrich our daily classroom practice. In addition, we ensure our students see a range of performances both in and out of school, for example at La Boite, QPAC and Powerhouse.
