Teachers nurture lifelong learning by encouraging independence
The Performing Arts Faculty offers the subjects of Dance, Drama and Music. Drama
and Music are offered from Years Seven to Twelve, Dance from Year Nine. The
emphasis is very much on creating and making one’s own pieces and exploring and
responding to the works of others. Students are given many opportunities to
present and perform their work in front of an audience through ensemble
evenings, showcases, concerts and presentation evenings. They are provided with
excellent facilities and spaces to create and present their pieces.
addition, members of the Performing Arts Faculty contribute much to the
co-curricular activities offered by the College. These include, Music Tuition; a
wide range is offered, from piano to voice to saxophone and even being a member
of the many bands and ensembles, as well as the College Production. In recent
years the College Production has taken the form of a musical, offering
opportunities to students from Years Seven through to Twelve. The College also
annually hosts MADD Night which is a celebration of Music, Art, Dance and Drama.
In addition, students also have the opportunity to take part in Festivals and
competitions such as the Mount Gambier Jazz Festival.
