The Arts

Visual Arts

In addition to the art integrated into the Inquiry units, students participate in a weekly one-hour visual arts lesson. They have the opportunity to create artworks and craft to submit to local competitions such as the Marysville Art Show, the Alexandra Agricultural Show and the Murrindindi Beanie Festival.

Music

Music lessons are one hour per week. Students learn to play steel pans, keyboard, guitar and ukulele in addition to the fundamentals of rhythm, percussion, movement and music appreciation. We have an annual end of year performance and participate in local musical community events.

Drama

Students study drama in Semester 2 each year, culminating in a school play performance at the end of the year. All students are involved in the production, either on stage or behind the scenes. Drama lessons explore body language, movement, improvisation and developing characters.

Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge the Taungurung people as the first peoples of Buxton and the surrounding areas. The Taungurung have been custodians and caretakers of the land, animals and waters for many thousands of years and continue to perform age-old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal. We also recognise other Indigenous peoples living and working in the Buxton area.
