Creative Arts

Creative arts can provide an avenue for students to explore their talents and interests. Students will experience unique learning opportunities in visual arts, music, drama and dance that will invite them to make, appreciate, perform, organise, listen and compose. 

Our passionate teaching staff develop engaging and innovative learning experiences that inspire students to be confident and creative learners and to reach their expressive potential. 

Students at St Mary's are encouraged to:

  • strengthen their practical skills in an art form
  • immerse themselves in a dynamic creative environment
  • think critically about the arts
  • find new ways of tackling creative challenges.

Students participate in a wide range of opportunities for learning and excellence in performance, exhibitions and creativity.

In addition to the classroom Performing Arts curriculum, private and small group instrumental lessons and singing lessons are available during school hours with qualified, experienced tutors such as Piano, Guitar, Violin, Brass, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone Public Speaking and Private Japanese language lessons. These lessons are at an extra cost, paid directly to the tutor each term. Timetables are rotated each week, so children do not miss the same classroom work.
