The Arts After School Clubs

Hip Hop Tribe

Every Monday after school in the Dance Room

This is a student run program, where leaders in Years 11 and 12 teach younger students hip hop sequences to create a performance for Showcase. The program provides students with the opportunity to expand their dance technique and skills. 

Any student in Years 7 – 12 interested in improving and showcasing their Street Dance skills can come along. Hip-Hop Tribe is a sign up club – anyone is welcome but attendance needs to be consistent to create performances 

Theatre Production

Rehearsals are every Tuesday afternoon until 5 pm at the Performing Arts Centre for Years 7 – 12 students  

Learn and perform a play to the public in Term 3.  

A successful audition in Term 1 will see students granted with a role in the cast. Cast sizes are limited according to the play so it is a competitive audition process to be involved  

The club is run to showcase our budding young actors within the community. It allows students with a passion for the Arts and performance to have a moment to shine on the stage and to be surrounded with like-minded peers from across the years. The team-building and bonding that occurs within a production is a sight to behold and gives many students their purpose and place of belonging while at school.
