The Arts at ASHS has a proud tradition of providing stimulating learning environments through which students can pursue studies in one or more of the four Arts areas:- Drama, Media, Music, and Visual Arts.
In lower school, students are offered a range of elective subjects in each of the four areas, practical work being the main focus. Each discipline provides a range of skills that foster partcipation and builds a foundation for further study.
In upper school, students may study courses from General, Certificate or ATAR course, leading into either academic or vocational pathways. Completion of these courses enables admission into University studies or TAFEWA, and life-long appreciation and enjoyment of the Arts.
ASHS offers a vibrant Arts Centre with specialist facilities in all areas.
Students studying subjects in the Arts can be a part of exciting in-school and extra-curricular activities including:-
- Arts Week activities
- School music performances at the Albany Entertainment Centre (AEC)
- Cross curricular excursions to the Perth International Arts Festival
- Art exhibitions
- Film entries for local and national competitions
- Evening theatre productions
- Master classes in music with international professionals
- Radio Active concert with WAAPA
- Annual Showcase performances
- Participation in local and national Visual Art competitions
- Extensive program of excursions and camps
- Regular public performances by Certificate II students
- Open access to facilities and staff for students to work, practise and collaborate.
Many of our current students are enjoying success in the local community, in the state and some even on a national scale. Former students have been awarded top honours across each of the four Arts subjects they studied at ASHS.
The Arts Learning Area also supports activities that embrace our school's values of tolerance and acceptance. These activities foster awareness and understanding of important local, national and international social issues. This, in turn, helps develop students’ creativity and emotional maturity.
All of this is a part of the Arts scene at our school. If students are interested in pursuing the Arts for a career, or to improve and extend their current skills and enjoyment, we can help them find the right direction.
