Our Specialist Performing Arts teacher has a focus on engaging in healthy life choices and expression of identity and community through Dance and Drama.
We invite local and national performing groups to deliver exciting and thought-provoking performances to our students to inspire a passion in the industry and critical thinking as global citizens (whilst having a lot of fun along the way!).
We engage in the Dream Big Festival through creating dances. Students are invited to join our additional extra-curricular dance troupe!
Long Street Primary School engages in the annual Festival of Music via the Whyalla Concert. Choir students participate in weekly trainings with access to additional resources to rehearse outside of school. The annual festival is a great source of pride for our learners as they sing songs they love and perform on the grand stage of the Middleback Theatre.
This experience boosts not only singing and rhythm skills but builds discipline, exposes students to the world of theatre and performance and enables them to meet students across the local region which can turn into lifelong friendships.
The Instrumental Music program is available for students in Years 5 and 6 who are interested in learning guitar. The selection process for inclusion involves parent approval and an aptitude test. This process takes place each November for the following year.
Long Street Primary School is proud to be one of very few schools with a specialist language teacher based on site. Students are transported to the world of Indonesia through language, culture, customs and history!
