The Arts

The Arts program at Sacred Heart Primary School is developed from the Victorian Curriculum.  Each student has the opportunity to participate in a structured and planned Arts Program with a specialist Arts teacher.

The Arts enable students to develop their creative and expressive capacities by learning about the different practices, disciplines and traditions that have shaped the expression of culture locally, nationally and globally. Students are both artist and audience in the Arts. They make and respond and learn to appreciate the specific ways this occurs in different disciplines.

The Arts Program at Sacred Heart School focuses on:

  • Visual Arts – Painting, Drawing, Collage, Art Appreciation, History and Theory
  • Performance Arts – Acting, Dancing and Improvisations
  • Music – Rhythm, Beat, Music Appreciation, Basic Notation and Culture

Visual Arts

Students are given the opportunity to express their creativity using many different mediums. During these lessons students’ imaginations will be challenged, personal expression will be encouraged and art skills will be developed.

Music & Performing Arts

All students are encouraged to develop a love of music and performing through creating, making and presenting. They will sing, dance, move, perform, learn about music theory and music of other cultures and about masters in the field of music and performing. The Year 6 students participate in a Production each year towards the end of Term 3.

Instrumental Lessons:

Students have access to a range of instruments to learn. Lessons are run by external providers and are offered after school hours, depending on the instrument selected by the child and parent, in collaboration with our lesson providers.

Excursions and Incursions:

Each year students in the Senior Classes are invited to attend the Musical Performances undertaken by local Secondary Schools.  These Excursions play an important role in developing a broader knowledge of music and performance and about how performances are created, their inspiration and how they are presented.

Further opportunities to engage in artistic endeavours are provided for students as part of school liturgies and paraliturgies, school assemblies, classroom performances in front of the individual classes or year levels and many more.
