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.
The recorder ensemble is a dedicated group of students who rehearse weekly under the tutelage of Mr Bonnor. They learn songs for performances, including at the Sydney Opera House. The songs can be quite challenging and these students are required to learn them off by heart which is an impressive achievement. The recorder is a great instrument as it is inexpensive, portable and the fingering is very similar to other instruments such as flute, clarinet and saxophone. So play the recorder and go places!
