Creative and Performing Arts
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, each Thursday, from 12:50pm - 2:40pm, students in Years 7-10 can come to St Clare's and work with other like-minded students equally passionate about music. Students are mentored by the best teacher and industry professionals.
Taught by a combination of fully qualified music teachers and highly skilled practitioners, each course of study provides the following:
- Vocational Education and Training qualifications recognised under the National Qualifications Framework
- Opportunities to perform with students who share interests and to work with 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.
