Performing Arts contributes to the school curriculum by developing students’ abilities to work as part of a group, present in any given circumstance, refine performance skills, analyse and evaluate work and develop independent thinking.
Performing Arts is important for students to become well rounded individuals and builds empathy and confidence. It is also important in everyday life and in many forms of employment.
We want all of our students to be confident, skilled and caring individuals that can present themselves clearly and concisely in any given circumstance.
Within the Performing Arts Teaching and Learning Area we aim to set challenging targets with high expectations for all. We believe in individual progression and personalised learning aimed at the individual. We always look at new ways of supporting and challenging students to ensure the highest standards are not only met but exceeded where possible.
At the end of their Performing Arts education at St Mary’s it is our vision that each student will:
- Experience the satisfaction and enjoyment of their performing arts achievements
- Be confident working individually and as a member of a group
- Perform with a level of skill and confidence
- Be able to analyse and evaluate work
- Work within a time constraint
- Develop new skills as well as building upon existing ones.
- Obtain their best possible results
