St Clare’s is partnered with CAPTIVATE, the creative and performing arts program for Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese.
CAPTIVATE provides learning and performance opportunities for students and connects them with Australia’s leading creative arts professionals and their wealth of experience and networks.
As a CAPTIVATE Hub School we are a place where each Thursday at 12:50pm - 2:40pm students in years 7-10 can come every week to work with other like-minded students equally passionate about music to study with the best teachers and industry practitioners.
Taught by a combination of fully qualified music teachers and highly skilled professional practitioners, each course of study provides the following:
- Vocational Education and Training qualifications recognised under the National Qualifications Framework
- Performance opportunities working with students of like interest and contemporary practicing artists.
The course is designed to bring together music students interested in excellence in performance. This is a highly practical course with a heavy emphasis on learning through performance preparation. Theoretical knowledge and technical skills are developed, however assessment is on the practical demonstration of knowledge and skill as a performer.
