Regarding Visual Arts/Drama, we generally present a School Production every second year, State School Spectacular on alternate years. This allows students, particularly in the senior grades, to experience both forms and expressions of Performing Arts. In 2019, the whole school performed ‘The Wizard of Oz’ at the Karralyka Theatre in Ringwood. 2020 will see the senior students once again perform in the State School Spectacular.
