Creative arts

Creative arts is mandatory for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. 

In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts where they learn to appreciate, compose, listen, make and perform.

Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives.

Floraville Public School has a proud tradition of excellence in the Arts. A range of opportunities are available to our students.

School Band

Floraville school has a Concert Band. Our band has continued to develop over recent years. Recently we saw the inception of a second band at Floraville – known as The Mini Minors. This band is made up of students who have been playing their instrument for less than 12 months and is designed to allow our beginners to have a band experience whilst still learning the basics on their given instrument – essentially training them to become part of the larger Concert Band.  By creating the Mini Minors we then enabled our more experienced players in the main ensemble the chance to tackle more challenging music and further develop their musicality. Strong interest has been shown by students across Years 3–6.

The aims of the band program are to

  • foster a love of music
  • provide an introduction to band membership, fostering organisational and team membership skills
  • develop musical skills in conjunction with outside lessons

The children joining the band understand that they will be responsible for their instrument and are committed to the band on 12 month timeframes. The band operates on a user pays system. Rehearsals are held Mondays. For other information on the band please contact the school office.

Choir

We currently have two choirs, a senior choir consisting of students from Years 3 – 6 and a junior choir with students from Years 1 and 2. The choirs practice each week during break times. The senior choir performs throughout the year at various school events and outdoor venues. Members of the senior choir have also performed in both the Starstruck choir and the Schools Spectacular Choir in recent years. The junior choir performs at school assemblies as well as at local community events.

Art Gallery

Floraville Public School is proud of the wide range of art forms produced by students each year. We showcase selected students work twice a year in our Art Gallery. The featured works form part of each classes' integrated learning program. We have an Art Gallery opening in Term 1 and Term 3 when invitations are issued to family members to come to our opening and enjoy the creative talents of their children. The Art works are then hung in the school foyer for all our visitors to admire.

Dance

Students at Floraville Public School love to express themselves through dance. Dance groups allow students to learn a variety of dance forms and provides opportunities for students to perform in front of an audience. Students develop self confidence and self expression through the various dance forms.
