'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

Matilda Musical Excursion
2017 has started off with a BANG for our Performing Arts department with a number of fabulous Performing Arts clubs up and running and a Year 6 visit to the QPAC in Brisbane to watch the amazing production of Matilda!
Our Performing Arts leaders are finding their feet and undertaking many duties. Here is their review of Matilda:
Review by the Performing Arts Leaders 2017
“My Mummy says I’m a Miracle!!!” “Maggots!” “We are revolting children!” This is what you could hear as we all left the QPAC last week after watching Matilda the Musical. The performance was amazing and included magnificent lighting, sound effects, sets, costumes, choreography and so much more. Some of our favourite moments were the use of lasers, the song ‘Revolting Children’ which we all joined in with, and the amazing actors. This is sure to be one of the highlights of Year 6 for us all and we are so lucky to have been able to watch it with our friends and teachers. 

Opera Queensland School Workshop
Exciting news! Opera Queensland are coming to PSSS in Term 2 to workshop with a few classes across the school, culminating with a perfomance for the whole school. An amazing opportunity for everyone.

It certainly is a hive of activity within the Performing Arts block with PA lessons, Instrumental and Strings students coming and going four days of the week, and Lunchtime Clubs everyday. It’s an exciting place to be.
