The Dance program is a prominent part of the Creative and Performing Arts Syllabus.

The Dance P&C sub-committee works closely with school staff to enhance the program offered. Dance lessons are provided for students in all years. Dance teachers are employed to teach the students with the assistance of the class teachers. These lessons are held during school hours and are subsidised by a minimal payment from the parents at the beginning of each semester. Dance is a mandatory section of the Creative and Performing Arts syllabus. The program assists the students to develop coordination, social skills, and self-esteem and builds confidence.

Weekly Dance Lessons
Each class participates in weekly dance lessons with a specialised dance teacher.

Dance Ensemble
A special Dance Ensemble Dance Group is formed each year to enable the school to be represented at events such as the Mid North Dance Festival and various other eisteddfods. Students for the ensemble are selected by audition.

Various dance groups entertain the school and wider community with performances at various venues, giving our school a wonderful reputation.

Musical Heights

At the end of each year the whole school presents a musical spectacular known as ‘Musical Heights'. Each class performs an original item displaying the dance and musical skills taught throughout the year. This is a wonderful opportunity for the students to showcase their talents to parents and friends.
