In the last few weeks of school, students across the Creative and Performing Arts subjects have performed exceptionally.

I would like to acknowledge students for their incredible work and teachers for their contribution in coordinating the Technology, Creative and Performing Arts Exhibition on 22 November. Students produced such a high standard of work; they should be very proud of their achievements. This event provides the opportunity to recognise every student by showcasing their work at a public exhibition.

It also gives students a great sense of pride to be able to share their major works with family, friends, and fellow classmates. Thank you to all who attended to support our students and teachers and we look forward to next year’s showcase.

It has been fantastic to see more of our students challenge themselves by stepping out of their comfort zone. For the first time, we were proud to see every cohort from Years 7 to 10 participate in Greek Dancing at the ASG Taverna Night. Similarly, at the Instrumental Concert on 1 November we launched the Year 7 and 8 cohort, with some students only learning to play an instrument for the very first time. Performing on stage in front of an audience at both these events was a highly rewarding experience for all students.

Elective numbers for both Visual Arts and Music have skyrocketed, with our 2023 Music HSC class more than tripling in numbers. It will be the largest HSC class in the school’s history.

Our team of specialist tutors continues to grow to meet the demand of our students in both our band and private music lesson programs. 2022 saw the launch of our Senior and Junior Rock Bands and Secondary Dance Group. Creative and Performing Arts is central to the cultural life at ASG. It is brilliant to see more students participating in these subjects.
