Performing Arts here at Warranwood Primary School is a Prep to Six program that includes the Arts disciplines of Drama, Dance, Music and Media.
All levels of the school have a major performance each year.
These performances include:
Prep – School based mini –productions on Grandparents Day and an End of Year show in the evening performed in the Performing Arts Room
Junior School – A full length Green Screen movie screened at Reading Cinemas
Middle School – A live theatre show performed at The Mahon Theatre, Aquinas College
Senior School – A full production at The Mahon Theatre, Aquinas College
In addition to all of these annual performances, students also perform to each other regularly in class as they share their group work.
Our program is unique with the opportunity for our Senior school students to create computer generated original songs using Garage Band on their iPads and green screen movies filmed on their iPads and edited using iMovie.
We have an extensive wardrobe of costumes due to our Costume Mistress and we have Performing Arts Captains, Production Captains and a Production Team of Grade Six students. These Captains and the Team assist throughout the year at all shows in all levels of the school and maintain our Costume wardrobe.
Our Performing Arts teacher, Jacinta O’Leary, is a qualified Generalist Primary School teacher and a Qualified Drama and Dance teacher and has a back ground in the Performing Arts industry. Mrs O’Leary has a passion and enthusiasm for this area of the curriculum and loves every minute with the students.
