Creative arts

Creative arts is mandatory for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. 

In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts where they learn to appreciate, compose, listen, make and perform.

Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives.



Dance is an integral part of the K-6 curriculum at Connells Point. Through dance, students develop the ability to communicate and express themselves through movement. Through dance, students develop awareness of the ways their bodies move, the space in which they move, the time and quality of their movements and their relationship to each other and objects. Students participate in composing, moving and appreciating a range of dance styles.

There are a range of extra curricula dance groups available for students in years 3-6. Information about these groups is available at the beginning of each school year.

  •  Junior Girls' Dance (Yrs 3 and 4)
  • Senior Girls' Dance (Yrs 5 and 6)
  • Boys' Dance (Yrs 3 to 6) 

Visual Arts


In Visual Arts, students will develop knowledge, skills and understanding:

  • in making artworks informed by their investigations of the world as subject matter, use of expressive forms, and consideration of the audience for their works
  • in appreciating their own artworks and those of others, recognising the roles of artists, audiences and how the world can be interpreted.

The in-class Visual Arts program is supported by extra lessons lead with Mrs Abelas, a talented artist from our school community. Our students have enthusiastically participated in these lessons and have had a lot of fun creating various artworks.

Right: The Owls
In 2018, students in 2 Orange made artworks to accompany their poems about owls. During the process, students learned to make relief prints for their background and use pastels to portray their owl.
