Creative Arts

The Creative Arts syllabus comprises:

  • Music
  • Dance
  • Drama
  • Visual Arts.

This involves developing technical competence and skills of designing and performing, as well as learning appreciation and self-expression in the visual and practical arts. Music, dance and drama are integrated in the performing arts program at Holy Family.

A specialist music teacher organises and teaches the Music, Dance & Drama programs at Holy Family each Tuesday. The children are exposed to various forms of music through practice and performances by musicians such as Musica Viva In Schools. The children are encouraged to compose their own compositions and perform for their peers.

The children learn instruments such as the ukulele, guitar and various percussion instruments.

Every second year a full school musical is written and performed by all the students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

The Primary children are invited to attend, and to participate in the gifted program for the Creative Arts in the Maitland-Newcastle Diocese, ASPIRE. As well as the concert at the Civic Theatre, the children are invited to become involved in various workshops throughout the year such as song writing, drama, musical theatre and dance.

The Holy Family Folk Group is a voluntary group who meet weekly to sing, dance and have fun. These children perform at various school, parish and community events throughout the year.

Specialist teachers also attend the school before and during class time to offer classes in; piano, keyboard, guitar, drumming and drama.
