Students learn about culture and community through a study of the creative arts. Each art form has its own unique skills, concepts and a capacity to inspire and enrich lives. Creative arts is mandatory for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. In Years 7–10 students must study both music and visual arts. They also have an opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills in other art forms through elective subjects.
Teaching practice in creative arts is explicit and purposeful. Experiences are sequential and meaningful to develop students’ skills, knowledge and understanding within the art forms. Creative arts develops the whole child through its unique content and experiences.
