Creative Arts


Creative arts can provide an avenue for students to explore their talents and interests. Students will experience unique learning opportunities in visual arts, music, drama and dance that will invite them to make, appreciate, perform, organise, listen and compose. 

Our passionate teaching staff develop engaging and innovative learning experiences that inspire students to be confident and creative learners and to reach their expressive potential. 

Students at St Anthony’s Primary School are encouraged to:

  • strengthen their practical skills in an art form
  • immerse themselves in a dynamic creative environment
  • think critically about the arts
  • find new ways of tackling creative challenges.

Students participate in a wide range of opportunities for learning and excellence in performance, exhibitions and creativity, such as: 

  • Teams of students participating in Tournament of the Minds
  • Performance Choirs
  • Handbell Ensembles
  • End of Year Musical Productions
  • Verse-speaking choirs competing in the Murwillumbah Performing Arts Festival
  • Participating in the Les Peterkin Portrait Prize Competition
  • Participating in the Lions Peace Prize Competition
  • Dance instruction
  • All students participate in public speaking and can go on to compete in the Tweed Zone Public Speaking Competition
  • Lego Robotics Club.

In addition to the classroom Performing Arts curriculum, private and small group instrumental lessons and singing lessons are available during school hours with qualified, experienced tutors. These lessons are at an extra cost, paid directly to the tutor each term. Timetables are rotated each week so children do not miss the same classroom work.
