Our dynamic Performing Arts learning area enables students to grow in confidence and develop their skills in all areas of performance. As Creative Arts Academy subjects, students will have several opportunities to enrich their studies. This includes performing in public showcases, attending national and international trips, and learning from professional masterclasses. Students work in excellent facilities and learn from teachers who are industry professionals.
