In the Early Learning Centre music is an integral part of the curriculum and the spontaneity of the very young is encouraged. In the Primary Years students participate in music activities as core subjects through listening, singing, playing and dancing. The Co-curricular program provides extension of the core, and children may join the Choir, take private instrumental lessons, and participate in bands, ensembles and orchestra.
Each student undertakes classes in health, physical education and sport as they journey through the School. There are opportunities for students to enjoy sports for recreation and pleasure and also for competition both within the School and in inter-school sports.
Performing and Visual Arts
Students participate in the Creative and Performing Arts throughout their life at the School. Either as part of the core curriculum, as elective subjects or as extra-curricular studies students are encouraged to experiment to discover their creative talents. The appreciation of artistic achievement is developed as participant and as spectator.
