The Arts

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

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

We engage a Creative Arts teacher to teach The Arts subjects over the year once a week to each class. The classroom teachers cover Media Arts and also part of the other Arts subjects throughout the year integrated into the context of the classroom.

With lunchtime Arts Club students also have opportunities throughout the year to be explore various activities such as a choir, drama club, practise instruments, drawing club, etc.

There is a junior and senior concert/musical each year where students get to experience performing on stage to a larger audience.

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.
