Welcome back to 2017 from the Creative & Performing Arts Faculty. The faculty is a diverse hub of classroom and extracurricular activity with 2017 with many opportunities presenting themselves for students right across the K-12 spectrum.
In the classroom, the CAPA team has worked hard on refining and developing our well recognised courses. But, as always, we are looking for new opportunities that push the boundaries of student creativeness, and this will be a hallmark of 2017. Much research, locally and on a global scale, demonstrates clearly that if the community is involved in the learning programs of a school, then student outcomes are positively affected. What does this mean for parents and caregivers, it can be a simple as talking about the day's learning experiences, they might even have their art books and others at home, have a look and discuss what it means to them. Many of our course in CAPA will from time to time get you involved as an audience or a participating member.
