We value the arts because they expand the mind and the soul, and foster a sense of creativity and purpose. They help to inculcate a love of learning and encourage collaboration amongst the students. We are committed to offering our students a well-rounded education which, includes exposure to dance, visual arts, music and film.
We have an experienced and talented teaching team who deliver an on-trend arts program supported by world-class facilities, which help our students to develop a comprehensive understanding of techniques and processes, as well as historical and cultural perspectives. Students develop an understanding of visual art through expression in a variety of mediums, including ceramics and sculpture, fashion design, furniture design, painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, visual communication and multimedia, with their work producing an eye-opening example of what can be created when passion and talent are supported in a practical way.
Those students who have a penchant for words and the stage have an opportunity to explore their creativity under the guidance of the Flinders Drama Department. Students develop knowledge, understanding and skills in such areas as scriptwriting, directing, sound and lighting operation and, of course, acting, within a rich and exciting range of topic areas, complemented by co-curricular experience.
Research shows that students who regularly participate in education theatre or drama activities are better readers, more effective communicators, are better at problem solving and coping with stress and are generally assessed more highly by their teachers in all aspects.
At their disposal is the much-touted Flinders Performance Centre, an outstanding facility that creates the feeling of real-world success. The collaborative nature of the drama program provides students with opportunities to learn and to manage the interpersonal and intrapersonal skills required to work effectively, both individually and in groups.
