The Arts

The St Ignatius Art program allows students to explore a wide variety of art forms and techniques under the guidance of a specialist Art Teacher in a dedicated Art Room. Instruction is offered in the visual arts and this includes drawing, painting, printmaking, textiles, construction, modelling. Samples of the children's work are displayed in school foyers and stairwells and each year in Term 3 a school Art Show is held to showcase the children's work for the year. 

A specialist dance teacher is employed in Term 3 to teach all students. This intensive dance tuition culminates in participation in a Dance Competition held in conjunction with a number of schools called "Dance Fever".

The children at St Ignatius are given many opportunities to develop their musical ability.  The school music program facilitates every class having a weekly 45 minute lesson with our specialist Music Teacher.  During these lessons the children have the opportunity to foster a love of music through rhythm work, composition, playing recorders as well as dance and singing.  The school choir is for students in Years 4 to 6 and it participates in the Combined Catholic School Choral Festival annually.

Drama and Media are integrated into focussed units of study each term. Presentation of students' skills are celebrated at weekly assemblies.

An instrumental music program provides tuition to students wishing to learn brass, woodwind or percussion.  Children from Year 4 up are eligible to be included in the brass, woodwind and percussion program.  Private piano and strings tuition is offered, as well as private speech and drama tuition.
