Creative Arts

Yanginanook offers a variety of Creative Arts! Students participate in music lessons including singing, dancing and playing percussion instruments.  Our older students learn to read music and play the recorder. Each year the children help to write the Christmas Play. Each child is involved in learning his or her lines, designing costumes and making props and stage settings for their innovative performance.

Students actively engage in creative hands-on lessons each week. We have an art shed, large kitchen and outside areas where children are given the freedom and guidance to develop their artistic and creative abilities. Examples of recent projects, completed by students from Kindergarten to Year 6, are shown below.
