Arts Enhancement  

As part of our commitment to maximising student achievement, students who are achieving highly in particular academic areas are identified to access enhancement programs. These programs mean that students are withdrawn from class for a session each week to work with a teacher on individual and group activities to further develop their abilities to their full potential. Algester’s creative students are selected to take part in the Arts Enhancement Program or Drama to develop their abilities in The Arts.

Drama Enhancement Program

The Drama Enhancement Program is offered to aspiring actors in Year 6. The program runs for 8 weeks and seeks to develop the students acting, creative thinking and performance skills. This is achieved through intensive coaching and participation in Improvisation, Theatre Sports and Drama Games. The students are also involved in the creating, shaping and rehearsing of a Drama piece for a whole school event.

Students involved in the program partake in a two hour Drama lesson each week and attend extra rehearsals in their lunch times in preparation to perform at school functions.

Visual Art Enhancement

During Terms Two and Three, a group of Year 5 and 6 students focus on skill development across the elements of line, colour, tone, texture and shape.
They create numerous pieces using mixed media. All students show a keen interest in this program to develop into talented artists. Their pieces will be on display through out the school.
