Visual Arts and Music (CAPA)

In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts where they learn to appreciate, compose, listen, make and perform.

Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives.

Students must study 100 hours of both music and visual arts during Years 7 to 10. They also have an opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills in other art forms through elective subjects. Students can then select from a range of courses in Years 11 to 12.

Creative Arts at Heathcote High

The creative arts program at Heathcote High School is taught via various specialist faculties. Music and Visual Arts is studies in our Creative & Performing Arts (CAPA) faculty while Drama is studied in English and Dance is studies in PDHPE.

Welcome back students of Music.  We are looking forward to an exciting year.  

The Band will be regrouping this term with our first meeting during week 4. Returning members, as well as new hopefuls are encouraged to attend and join in this fun and rewarding activity. Once names are taken we will commence rehearsals and tutorials.

Guitar and Drum lessons are offered again for interested students. We have many dedicated young musicians already taking lessons and we have room for those keen to learn these instruments.

Junior years will be invited to attend some incursions and workshops this year focusing on Samba percussion, rock music and guitar skills.
