Specialist Learning Areas

The Arts

We encourage our students to embrace their artistic side; to express themselves through creativity.

Each term the specialist teacher focuses on a different part of the Arts curriculum. These include:

  • Music
  • Drama
  • Dance
  • Visual Arts

Senior students can apply to be part of the School Choir which culminates in a combined Catholic Primary Schools Choir performance at the Festival Theatre in September.

Health and Physical Education

It is important for our students to build their fitness, skills and bodies as much as their minds.

The specialist teacher integrates different aspects of the Physical Education curriculum to accommodate the needs of all students. Your child will learn about the following topics:

  • Moving our body
  • Understanding movement
  • Learning through movement
  • Swimming

In addition to these, senior students attend an outdoor education camp and we participate in SACPSSA Carnivals in sports include swimming, athletics, soccer, Aussie Rules football and netball.

Chinese Language studies

Our students are connected with the global world through their own Mandarin teacher... who is based in Beijing!

Our Years 4 and 5 students have one lesson a week learning Mandarin through an innovative program called My Chinese Teacher.

They speak to their tutor - who is based in China - by video conference, learning one of the most widely-spoken languages in the world!
