Arts at Spearwood Primary School

At Spearwood Primary School we recognise that The Arts engages, inspires and excites the imagination and which encourages students to reach their creative and expressive potential.

Dance, Drama, Media Arts, Music and Visual Arts provide opportunities for students to learn how to create, design, represent, communicate and share their imagined and conceptual ideas, emotions, observations and experiences, as they discover and interpret the world.

Spearwood Primary School runs two specialists Art areas:  Visual Arts and Music with dedicated rooms.

Visual Arts

Spearwood Primary students from Pre-Primary to Year Six study Visual Arts under the guidance of their class teacher.  The lessons are held in the Visual Arts Classroom,  this modern well equipped facility includes a professional kiln for clay and is located adjoining the new undercover area.  Classroom teachers do many extra visual arts activities in their classrooms as part of integrated teaching and learning programs.


Pre-Primary to Year Six students have the performance arts subject of Music under the guidance of their classroom teacher.  These lessons are held in the well-resourced Music Room adjoining the new undercover area.

Instrumental Music School Services (IMSS)

Five students in Year 5 and another five in Year 6, learn guitar under the tutorage of an Instrumental Music School Services teacher on-site at Spearwood Primary School.  Spearwood is one of the few local schools with and on-site IMSS Program.  The students are selected in Year 4 through a Music aptitude test and then offered a place in the Instrumental program.

The acceptance of a place in the program has the expectation that students will be committed to learning the instrument and practising daily at home or in their own time.  Learning an instrument though the IMSS program opens opportunities for enrolment into Music Specialist courses in Government High Schools.
