Creative arts

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.

Choir on steps of Opera House

Tower Street Public School has a history of excellence in the performing arts. Our choir is the only primary school to have performed at all performances of the School Spectacular since its inauguration in 1984.

Our choir groups have performed to audiences at the Opera House and the Sydney Town Hall, as well as at community and school based events. Tower Street PS students have been selected vocalists for the Talent Advancement Program (TAP) and we appear on the Sing CD used by schools across Australia.
