This is a diverse department covering Years 7-12 and currently encompassing:
Music is taught as an elective subject in Years 7 to 9. Commencing in Year 10, students have the opportunity of studying Music in the Year 10 Music Elective which is a single year of study, or taking Music as full VCE subject though the Unit 1 to 4 sequence in VCE Music Performance or in the VET Music Industry stream. Students in Years 7 & 8 have music for three of the four semesters across the two years, during which they have access to the Class Band program which focusses on developing instrumental skills in performing and working together in an ensemble. The program allows our students to have access to take home instruments for a full year in either Year 7 or Year 8. Students in the Year 9 Music Elective undertake a varied program with performance as a focal point, along with developing musical understanding and learning basic guitar skills.
Music also has a very busy co-curricular program where students have the opportunity to be part of a variety of musical ensembles.
Drama and Theatre Studies offers both elective subjects and co-curricular experiences, which foster personal growth, performance and stagecraft skills from Year 7-VCE. The Annual School Play is a much anticipated production and one for which many students audition. In Year 11 students undertake the study of Drama and learn about the many aspects of stagecraft whilst Year 12, undertake Theatre Studies in order to learn about the many facets of the theatre from history and character of theatre to theatre criticism of performance.
