The Arts

The Arts program at St Joseph’s, Hectorville covers the five learning areas of The Australian Curriculum, including Drama, Dance, Music, Visual Art, and Media arts. We provide opportunities for students to learn how to create, design, represent, communicate and share their imagined and conceptual ideas, emotions, observations and experiences.

The arts have the capacity to engage, inspire and enrich all students, exciting the imagination and encouraging them to reach their creative and expressive potential. Students develop non-verbal and verbal, individual and group communication skills which cross over into every area of the curriculum.

Students have many opportunities throughout the year to share their performance skills to the school and the wider community. St Joseph’s is a proud participant in Wakakirri and the Catholic School Music Festival giving students an amazing experience of live performance for a large audience.
