Creative arts

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

Studying the creative 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.

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. Students can then select from a range of courses in Years 11 to 12.

Creative and performing arts

The creative and performing arts (CAPA) faculty is committed to providing opportunities for all students to excel and experiment across a variety of artistic mediums including visual art, music, digital mediums, drama and dance. Students gain a range of theoretical knowledge and practical experience through each of the curriculum areas, using art as a vehicle for expressing themselves and understanding their worlds.

A highlight of the school calander is "The Show" featuring a combination of dance, music and drama performances by Randwick Boys and Girls High Schools. The 2012 show, Portraits, is proof that anything is possible. Is it possible to have model fish attached to scooters, riding around onstage? Yes, it is. Is it possible to create Fred Flintstone's car, a circus caravan and carousel horses? Yes, it is. Is it possible to get the Sydney Rock$tars, Randwick Boys' hip-hop dance group, doing Latin dance in white tuxedos? Yes, it is! Anything is possible in the creative and performing arts faculty.

 Exciting CAPA initiatives include:

  • lunch time jam sessions
  • vocal ensemble
  • concert band.
