Creative Arts Curriculum

Creative Arts gives students experiences in the visual arts, music, drama and dance domain. They have opportunities to explore their creativity in each of these areas. Students learn to appreciate the meanings and values that each art form offers. They perform and express themselves through the visual arts, music, drama and dance. 

At  St Patricks we offer choir groups. Students in upper primary also have the opportunity to audition for our Diocesan ASPIRE group.


ASPIRE is the Maitland/Newcastle Catholic Schools Office creative and performing arts program. With an emphasis on fostering creativity the ASPIRE program has a large number of programs on offer including in schools workshops and performance support and professional development for staff as well as special projects in areas such as songwriting, scriptwriting, devising theatre and choreography. ASPIRE also creates an original production each year through which students can audition to be a part of through dance, design, drama, vocal, stage band and production ensembles.
