Creative and performing arts

In creative and performing arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts.

Studying the creative and performing arts, students 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.

Before starting their HSC studies, students must study 100 hours of both music and visual arts during Years 7 to 10. They also have an opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills in other art forms through elective subjects including drama, dance, photography and visual design. Students can then select from a range of courses in Years 11 to 12.

At St Marys Senior High School, there are a wide range of Year 11 and Year 12 subjects that can be studied in the area of the creative and performing arts. Please refer to our information sheets which outline the details of these courses.
