The Arts

The Arts subject area encompasses dance and movement, drama, the visual arts, music and media studies, which assist the development of the whole person, providing for self expression, promoting growth and encouraging personal responses.

The students partcipate in specialist gymnastics and dance programs in alternate years.

Visual arts and media are taught in the context of the classroom by the class teachers.

We engage a specialist Music teacher to teach music to each class every week. The students also have opportunities to be part of the school choir and recorder band. We provide opportunities for children to take private music instruction during school time. St Matthew's currently offers the services of both a piano and guitar teacher.
