Learning in the Performing Arts prepares students for life-long creative involvement, building their confidence in presenting and performing for others. Through the study of Drama, Music and Dance, students learn how to express themselves artistically and to communicate their emotions. As 21st century performers, they also learn how to produce works digitally and how to record their works using a range of technologies. Students explore and review past and contemporary works as a means of inspiration
while tapping into culture and community expression. In state-of-the-art and purpose-built rooms, students in Years 7 & 8 undertake foundational learning while students from Year 9 onwards undertake more personalised learning through semester-based electives and year long senior courses.
The latest development stage of the College has seen the introduction of specialist Dance, Drama, Music and Digital Music spaces. These spaces include band and music tuition rooms, a professional dance studio, a recording studio and a range of contemporary performance spaces. The College Stadium is fitted with specialist lighting and sound systems. These resources are complemented by the magnificent adjoining stage area of significant size, providing performance area, curtains and ICT projection, side storage and dressing rooms.
Events such as the College Musical Production, annual performance evenings and external competitions – all held on stage in the Stadium – take performance to the next level, providing the opportunity for students of all skill sets to be involved both on stage and behind the scenes on a technical level.
