Creative arts is mandatory for students from Kindergarten to Year 6.
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.
Creative arts at Wyoming Public School
Wyoming provides many opportunities for our students to express their creative talents.
The dance group performs at Laycock St Theatre in the annual Central Coast Dance Festival. Students practise during lunch times and during sport. During Term 2 our dance group auditions for the Dance Festival.

Teachers are using these instruments to deliver engaging class activities for students.
