“Creativity takes courage.” Henry Matisse 

“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent." – Victor Hugo


CAPA (Creative And Performing Arts) is the study of Music, Art and Drama by utilising creativity in a multifaceted approach to the whole student. Each Creative And Performing Arts subject contributes to the students holistic development, including the participation of the mind, body and spirit, along with the use of the mind. The CAPA faculty draws on the knowledge and expertise of professional practitioners to expand the narrative of creativity in the use of both theory and practical aspects of our courses.

Our students have an everyday relationship with the creative and performing arts, as classroom activities are complemented by day-to-day interactions such as regular on-campus performances, Sculpture Walk and art galleries. Additionally, the study of music’s forms, styles and ideas encourages Students to develop an interest in, appreciation of and enjoyment of music and its history.

Furthermore, the study of Visual Arts enables students to develop an interest in and enjoyment of investigating the world through the ideas, aesthetic and contexts of artists and their work in a broad range of forms, media and styles.
