Junior School Arts Overview
Drama is taught in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 for one term per year. It is taught by a specialist drama teacher and enables students to develop their dramatic skills and build confidence performing. Students have the opportunity to audition for the Junior School musical and other performances which are regularly performed in our state of the art school theatre.
ECcelerate Drama is also available for students in Year 4, 5 and 6 as part of our Gifted and Talented program. These lessons are held before school and provides opportunities for students to explore the joys of all things dramatic. This program is open to all interested students.
Music in the classroom at Emmanuel College is an exciting subject to be a part of. The latest innovations in music technology are available to our students alongside a curriculum which covers a vast range of music styles and interests.
Visual and Media Arts is taught to all children from Prep to Year 6 in our new Junior School Art Studio. Students throughout the Junior School are given the chance to view the skills and techniques of an artist and learn from them. They will have practical experience with a range of visual art materials, techniques and processes such as clay, fabric, canvas, charcoal and dye. We are also developing the Media Arts and in time students will also learn media production where they will design, produce and distribute digital art. This will expand the student’s digital capabilities, improving their skills for many other subjects.
Students have the opportunity to develop their creativity and self-expression through various art and media forms. Visual and Media Art is celebrated with regular displays around the school as well as Art Exhibitions.
Junior arts students are given opportunities throughout the year to compete in local Eisteddfods and musical examinations. View a summary of our Junior School Performing Arts Results.
Emmanuel College offers an extensive co-curricular arts program including Speech and Drama, Dance and Music. Co-curricular arts students have opportunities to participate in examinations and competitions each year as well as opportunities to perform and showcase their craft.
