Student Life

The Arts

Drama

Drama has become an increasingly significant part of College life. Drama is offered as a subject in Years 9 – 12. A syllabus requirement is that Drama students perform in and view a range of dramatic productions. These excursions and performances are organised at class level and occur throughout the school year.

Music

Music is a compulsory subject for all students in Years 7 and 8, an elective in Years 9 and 10 and offered as a HSC course in Years 11 and 12.

Music tuition is available through the College covering a range of instruments with piano, guitar, violin, drums, trumpet, saxophone being the more popular choices. The Creative & Performing Arts Coordinator, Ms Carolyn O’Brien, oversees this program. 

Performance opportunities are available through the College Bands and Ensembles. The College Band tours periodically and compete in various competitions and Eisteddfods. Mr Rod Herbert leads rehearsals and performances for the Senior Concert Band, the Percussion Ensemble and the Jazz Band.

Annual Musical

Our annual College Musical is held each June. Auditions for students are held at the beginning of the school year with rehearsals taking place during Term 1 and Term 2 culminating with the show at the end of Term 2. There are four performances; a matinee for visiting primary schools and three evening performances. Tickets go on sale at the beginning of Term 2.

Cultural Arts Week

Each year in Term 3, the College hosts its annual Cultural Arts Week where various artistic activities take place. The climax of the week is the Spring Soiree where various musical and dramatic performances are showcased and our HSC Visual Arts and Design students exhibit their works.
