An opportunity to shine.

Creativity is without doubt a necessity for the 21st century. Visual Art, Music and Drama provide invaluable avenues for the growth of that creativity: imagination, improvisation, risk-taking, conceptual ideas and much more.

At Ormiston College, our extensive range of co-curricular activities offers each of our students the opportunity to indulge in a passion.

Students delight in their opportunity to shine in local, state, national and international productions, concerts, events, exhibitions, tours and camps.

Music

Ormiston College encourages all students to acquire a lifelong love of music. Specialist music teachers inspire and equip students to become the best musicians they can be. In doing this, music becomes a highly valued component of their lives both at school and beyond the classroom and, as a consequence, students develop skills in the areas of socialisation, self-expression and creativity, critical and subjective thinking, concentration and self-discipline. We believe the pursuit of excellence in music to be an essential part of a holistic and integrated education for all students.

Visual Art

Our Visual Arts opportunities include Junior School Art Club and Secondary Art Club. Ormiston College is renowned for hosting its biennial whole-school Art Show, a public exhibition displaying over 1,000 pieces of student artwork. A highlight of the opening night is the Wearable Art Parade. Student artists create artwork linked to the Art Show concept. This exciting event has inspired students to pursue careers in fashion and design.
