Languages Other Than English: French - Mrs Nicole Reilly 

Bonjour!

In the Languages Other Than English (LOTE) learning area, students learn to communicate effectively in languages other than English. They gain an understanding of other societies, the ability to interact with people and cultures other than their own and practical skills which they can use in future social, cultural and vocational areas. Through LOTE, students are also able to further develop their skills and understandings in English and of literacy in general.

 

Music / Drama : Mrs Emma Little

In The Arts learning area students develop creative skills, critical appreciation and knowledge of artistic techniques and technologies in dance, drama, music and combinations of arts forms. The Arts develop students’ sense of personal and cultural identity and equips them for lifelong involvement in and the appreciation of the arts.

Library / Art : Mrs Jane Wheeler and Mrs Carolyn Harvey 

Learning in Visual Arts involves students making and responding to artworks, drawing on the world as a source of ideas. Students engage with the knowledge of visual arts, develop skills, techniques and processes, and use materials as they explore a range of forms, styles and contexts.

Through Visual Arts, students learn to reflect critically on their own experiences and responses to the work of artists, craftspeople and designers and to develop their own arts knowledge and preferences. They learn with growing sophistication to express and communicate experiences through and about visual arts.

 

Library operates as a specialist Subject area. Students explore authors, genres and learn about research skills and the library system.
