Creative & Performing Arts

St George Christian School provides students with the opportunity to explore the spectrum of creative and performing arts from K-12.  From Kindergarten onwards, our students are able to learn a musical instrument or take speech and drama lessons. Creative skills are nurtured and explored in Junior and Middle School with programs in photography, drama, music and specialist interest groups.

 

For Senior Students, our School provides strong and varied creative and performing arts programs in which they can develop their talents and if desired, build on this firm foundation to pursue a career in the arts.

 

Students involved in our bi-annual musical productions learn drama, technical production and event management skills. Musical performances are regularly scheduled at various venues including to the whole school community to reinforce performance experience.

 

Students studying visual arts have opportunities throughout the course of their study to prepare exhibitions for the School and the wider community. We also work collaboratively with community galleries to equip our students with exhibition experience.

 

A strong program of attendance to art galleries, musical performance, theatre and arts workshops are at the core of our arts education across the curriculum.

 

St George Christian School is a place where creativity is encouraged and nurtured.
