THE ARTS

Encompassing Dance, Drama, Media, Music and the Visual Arts; the St Brigid’s College Arts Faculty works to create an exciting range of learning pathways.

St Brigid’s College has a long tradition of providing creative challenges in a Christ centred environment. Our College is fortunate to have well-resourced experiences available allowing students creative opportunities many would envy. This includes subject specific venues for all of the Arts, enabling students’ access to up to date Arts technologies and equipment.

Whilst based on the Western Australian Curriculum our courses have been designed to provide a range of supported, yet challenging creative opportunities. By providing sequential learning pathways in the Arts we strive to give the breadth and depth needed to springboard into the substantial career and employment opportunities that exist for Arts based students.

Co-Curricular Arts

Arts students are also exposed to a broad range of co-curricular Arts based experiences including professional incursions, excursions and focussed activities. We boast a broad range of co-curricular groups to cater for students who wish to extend their experience in all areas of the Arts. This includes groups such as our Junior, Senior and Liturgical Dance Troupes, Choirs, Drama productions and groups, Visual Art and Photography Clubs; providing our students a wide range of extension opportunities. In terms of music, students are also able to access specialist tutors, instrumental and choral ensembles should this be their creative focus.

Secondary Arts

Our secondary courses in Years Seven to Ten are based on the mandated State Curriculum and have been developed to also reflect student interests and provide stimulating creative experiences. Please refer also to the handbook for further information: Curriculum Handbook Years 7 to 9.

Arts students in Years Eleven and Twelve are able to access a range of ATAR and General WACE subjects. Depending on student need and demand, we provide specialist workshops to support their learning experience. Core to our senior programme is the opportunity to view, perform or exhibit work in public and community events or venues. Consequently, students are able to see first-hand the range of possibilities and standards that exist outside of the College. Please refer also to the handbook for further information:  Curriculum Handbook Year 10, Curriculum Handbook Years 11 and 12.
