Whether it’s Theatre, Visual Arts or Dance, being involved in The Arts at Caulfield Grammar School provides learners with a safe and supportive place for self-expression, discovery, creative collaboration and reflective connection.
Drawing on a rich variety of talent and resources, we offer a broad and inclusive curriculum of creative arts subjects and productions across our campuses. In addition to our curriculum, we provide students with a wide range of co-curricular offerings including artist-in-residence programs that sit alongside and within Secondary year learning programs; opportunities for students to explore their passions backstage – creating costumes, props and sets for theatrical productions; Art and Design tours; and a student-led Visual Arts Committee that organises and runs activities to enhance our community.
