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.
At Charlestown Public School we have a thriving Creative Arts program. Each Monday afternoon for the last 30 mins of the day the whole school participates in a range of activities including music, dance, drama and Choir. In addition to this we employ a specialised music teacher on Monday afternoons and each class participates in music lessons with her on a rotational basis. This teacher also runs an optional ukulele group with students performing regularly at assemblies. Every 2nd year we hold a concert to showcase the talents of our students.
