CAPA co-curricular

CAPA co-curricular

The Creative and Performing Arts faculty are offering a number of extension opportunities for Fort Street Students. I would like  to invite all students to get involved in our co-curricular groups to develop your skills in the arts. These are the groups being run:

Art Studio 1 

This class is designed for talented art students in years ​7 – 10 to focus on a particular medium and produce a finished work. These classes are run on Wednesday afternoons from 3:30 – 4:30 and are run by Ms. Blake. (There is a cost associated with this course for materials)

Art Studio 2

This class is designed for students in years 7 – 10 who are less confident with art making but would like to build skills in this area and would like to contribute to a group – developed project. These classes are run on Thursday afternoons from 3:30 – 4:30 and are run by Mr. Manuell.

Drama Club
This ensemble is designed to develop confidence and skill in communicating and performing for an audience. It is open for all students in years 7 and 8 and Drama students in year 9. Participation in this class will offer multiple performance opportunities. This group meets on Wednesday mornings at 7:45 and is run by Ms. Mattick.

This group learns Theatresports games in order to develop skill in improvised performance. It is open to students in years 9 – 12. Students develop problem solving skills and spontaneity as well as the ability to work effectively with others. Drama students participating in this ensemble will have the opportunity to be included in teams to represent the school in external theatresports competitions. These workshops are run on Monday afternoon from 3:30 – 4:30 and are run by Mr. Longfield.

All students have been emailed a permission note to join these groups so all they need to do is return this to the teacher responsible for that group. ​I would encourage all students to get involved in the rich learning opportunities being provided by the CAPA faculty as a way of building skills, meeting new people and having fun with their learning. If you have any questions about these groups please don’t hesitate to contact me at
