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 Joseph's Primary School 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, such as: 

In addition to the classroom Performing Arts curriculum, private and small group instrumental lessons are available with qualified, experienced tutors during school hours. 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.

Further Creative Art school events:

  • Art Showcase - Book Week, Catholic Schools Week, Woodburn Riverfest.
  • Public Speaking - Poetry and Prose night - Term 3.
  • Annual School Musical - Christmas celebration.
