The Performing Arts program at Wales Street Primary School provides students with opportunities to develop knowledge, skills and processes in the areas of Music, Drama and Dance from Foundation to Grade Six. During their 7 years at Wales Street, students develop a rich understanding of all facets of the craft of acting while improving confidence, social skills and expanding their speaking and listening skills. In Performing Arts we emphasize creativity, imagination and self-confidence. Students also gain an understanding of dramatic elements, percussion instruments, puppetry, stagecraft and dance movement.
The Performing Arts programs are carefully designed using the PYP curriculum elements while adhering to the Victorian Curriculum standards, allowing students to inquire into diverse and culturally connected topics.
Students also have the opportunity to experience the feeling of a live performance with lighting, stage, sound system, props and costumes during our school concerts and productions.
