'Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.' ~Thomas Merton

At Peregian Springs State School Performing Arts encompasses Drama, Dance, Music and Media.


In the curriculum each subject focuses on its own aesthetic, traditions and distinctive ways of looking at the world. The Arts subjects are also interconnected, particularly through hybrid and contemporary arts. The curriculum enables exploration of the dynamic relationships between Arts subjects evident in works from diverse cultures. This might involve students making works in traditional or contemporary forms or using material from one Arts subject to support learning in another.

The Australian Curriculum: The Arts aims to develop students’:
  • creativity, imagination and technical, aesthetic and critical thinking and practices with increasing self-confidence through engagement in making and responding to art works
  • curiosity about and skills in research and use of innovative arts practices and available technologies to express ideas and develop empathy with multiple viewpoints
  • aesthetic knowledge and communication: valuing and sharing experience, representing, expressing and communicating ideas about their individual and collective worlds to others in meaningful ways
  • insights into and understanding of local, regional and global cultures, histories and Arts traditions through engaging with the worlds of artists, art forms, practices and profession
