Performing Arts

The Performing Arts Program involves a combination of music, dance, drama and mixed media.

Box Hill North Primary school presents a whole-school production biennially at a local theatre. Every student is involved taking on roles both on-stage and off-stage, rehearsing and learning basic stagecraft elements.

Our school also runs instrumental lessons in guitar, violin, drums and keyboard/piano. Lessons run on a rotational program, during school hours. Each lesson runs for half and hour and is taught by a highly experienced teachers.

Students are encouraged to attend lunchtime ‘clubs’ that include choir, karaoke club and Kelly Sports Dance that each run for half an hour per week. There are also opportunities for the students to experience workshops and performances from amateur and professional groups.

All classes perform once a term at our weekly assembly and many instrumental students also perform the National Anthem each week. At the end of each semester, students are encouraged to perform at the music soiree. This allows the students the opportunity to perform in public, including those who have private lessons outside of school hours. The school year always ends with the fun and joyous Christmas carols, where all the students sing and perform with their class to the school community.

At Box Hill North Primary School we give all students in years 4 to 6 the opportunity to be a part of the mass dance or mass choir ensembles at the Victorian State Schools Spectacular. This gives all students an extra opportunity to display their talents in performing arts. Rehearsals are conducted once a week at school in the lead up the performance which is usually held in September. You can learn more about the Victorian State Schools Spectacular at their website.

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.
