“The arts have the capacity to engage, inspire and enrich all students, exciting the imagination and encouraging them to reach their creative and expressive potential. The five arts subjects in the Australian Curriculum provide opportunities for students to learn how to create, design, represent, communicate and share their imagined and conceptual ideas, emotions, observations and experiences.”

Through the study of visual and performing arts students are able to enjoy and appreciate the Arts as part of the human cultural heritage. The strands within the Arts are:
- Creating Art Ideas
- Arts Skills and Processes
- Arts Responses and Analysis
Working with a range of materials, instruments and media, students are engaged in studies in the field of art, craft, design, dance, drama and music. They are encouraged to develop knowledge and the skills of interpretation, performance and composition.
