Dare to Amaze
Dare to Amaze is about encouraging creativity, inspiring confidence and self-belief in our students and challenging them to think of unique ways to represent their talents and approach problems.
That’s why creativity is the common theme in all of our subjects and makes our purely creative areas truly stand out.
Our well-developed Arts program, offers Instrumental, Voice, Drama, Dance, Visual Arts and Hospitality subjects. There are also opportunities to boost creative pursuit with extra-curricular options.
Opportunities to Amaze:
- Dance, in our new state-of-the-art Dance Studio, is a focus which will be introduced to Year 7 in 2021 before expanding into other year levels.
- Public Speaking opportunities and development feature heavily at our College through UN Youth, Debating, Lions Youth of the Year and Rostrum Voice of Youth.
- An extensive Instrumental Music Program offers private instrumental music lessons that facilitate one on one tuition (in addition to College fees).
- Dramatic Arts teachers are working actors in popular local productions.
- Extra-curricular programs showcase creativity, from the College Dance Troupe and Drama Club who perform at Eisteddfod to our Artists in Residence workshops and programs offered throughout the year.
- Visual Art teachers are recognised, practising artists.
- Regular entrants in Strand Ephemera through sculpture and wearable art.
- A brand new industry standard Hospitality space.
“Our daughter is the third generation of our family to attend the College and, although we explored other schools, we were impressed with the smaller size, all girl’s aspect, music and singing and academic support.”
“I love the understanding and support we get from staff members and the opportunities we have to take part in subjects we enjoy and the amazing music and arts program (especially drama).”
