The Arts is an essential part of our life and culture, provide children with pleasure and enjoyment. They enable the children to express themselves in a creative way according to their own personality and talents.
Art & Craft
We have a specialist art program and a brand new facility that is second to none. Our children’s creativity and artistic skills are nurtured and developed. Carol Lawless is our Specialist Teacher
Our music program runs alongside our normal classroom programs with Louise Hall coordinating special events and choir activities. An annual feature is our involvement in the Diocesan Festival of the Sacred singing spectacular.
We also have talent shows and opportunities for music tuition through the school. Our school choir meets regularly and sings at School Masses, Assemblies and Community Events.
Our teachers utilise the state of the art Mary MacKillop Centre which boasts a magnificent stage and the latest in sound and video technologies in implementing our Performing Arts Program such as plays and talent quests.
LOTE ( Language Other Than English )
This year we implement a LOTE Program that focuses on a Language per term. This approach allows our children to be exposed to a variety of cultures, backgrounds, customs and traditions from countries from around the world. This is especially important for children who are generally exposed to minimal cultural influence in our country town. Our LOTE teacher is Tim Harber.
We have a magnificent Library that is maintained by Mary Laidlaw. The children have a specialist lesson each week where they learn the skills of the Library, borrow books and continue to nurture a love of Literature. This is also a major research centre for our boys and girls.
