Visual Arts

Class teachers provide a wide range of experiences in the Visual Arts and we encourage our students to become creative learners.

In 2020 students from Year 4 Davies brainstormed all of the things that make living in the Territory so special. They drew theirs ideas and put them into categories. Once this was done they drew their designs on tiles and created a collage to represent why ‘WE LOVE LIVING IN THE NT’. Click here to vote for Year 4 Davies art work.

The Performing Arts Program at Parap Primary School uses the Australian Curriculum Achievement Standards. The specialist program runs for one hour per week and students from Transition to Year 6 participate in the areas of music, drama, dance and media. Parap also takes part in the “Musica Viva” program and Australia’s “Music Count Us In” program.

Through the years Parap has celebrated cultural diversity, by showcasing “Celebrating Cultures” to our school community. Parap has also performed singalongs and bush dancing in the great outdoors. In recent times, students have performed in our magnificent hall to a packed audience.
