The Arts

The Arts is one of the 8 Australian Curriculum learning areas and we look forward to your continued support in promoting and developing the importance of creativity and skills through the Arts for your children.

The Arts Learning Committee has taken the initiative to set in place annual year level incursions and excursions to enrich the students’ learning through the Arts – Visual Arts, Music, Drama, Dance and Media.

Whole School Art Projects

Mosaics

The mosaics around the school have been designed by our specialist Art teacher and all involved the children in the creation process. The Art experiences across the school are of a high standard and it is an area of great pride across the school.

Inspiration Grove

With Mrs Bux’s creative vision, these have been created by every child in our P-7 classes and were made possible through the donation of poles and labour from Western Power, and a grant from the City of Cockburn. Supervision and assistance was provided by a willing band of parents and Mrs Christine Ireland and Mr Steve Lushey.
