Creative arts

Creative arts is mandatory for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. 

In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts where they learn to appreciate, compose, listen, make and perform.

Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives.

Students can unleash their creative flair through dance and drama performances, competitions, exhibitions and enrichment programs.

Students with particular interests and talents can participate in local and statewide activities in visual arts, music, dance and drama.

All Wakehurst students attend a weekly performing arts lesson incorporating music, dance and drama taught by specialist teachers. 

From Year 2 onwards students have an opportunity to participate in our dance groups which perform as part of the Sydney North Dance Festival. From Year 3 onwards students are eligible to join our band program and from Year 4 onwards students are eligible to join our choir program.

Drama is also offered each year as an extra curricular activity.
