The Performing Arts Program at Nailsworth Primary school focuses mainly on Music and Drama, although Dance is incorporated where it is relevant and engages students.
Curriculum From Foundation to Year 2, Music, Drama and Dance are woven together to develop positive social interactions and essential learning skills such as memory and concentration. From Year 3 onwards, students learn to play a variety of instruments including recorder, percussion instruments, violin and ukulele. In Drama, they learn how to create a drama as well as essential acting skills. Instrumental lessons are also offered through private instructors during school hours.
Students can be part of a Junior or Senior Choir, School Band or Drama Club. Each year a Performing Arts Showcase is held in Term 4 to allow students to share what they have learnt. Also, classes present at assemblies and other special events such as a Book Week Concert.
