This year in Performing Arts, we have a focus of communication, creativity and expression. These focus areas are explored differently across the year levels, with activities such as:
- School News Program – a ‘whole school’ edited news program which is screened at weekly assembly on Monday
- Class Plays – a range of topics and genres are explored, filmed and edited for constructive commentary the following week
- State School Spectacular – a group of students rehearse weekly for our final performance at Hisense Arena
- Video Editing – students produce video clips to original or existing songs
We provide the opportunity for students to be creative, and our plays and skits are always ‘child-driven’, with students making decisions about storyline, characters, costume and editing.
Yuille Park is a technology rich school and we are lucky enough to have an interactive whiteboard in the Performing Arts room, on which we display our class-made videos, rehearse dancing for State School Spectacular and play Wii dancing games.
We value inclusion, and are proud of what we can produce together.
