The Youth Theatre co-curricular provides young people at John Paul College with the chance to explore new directions and differing styles in theatre, through both performance and workshop programmes.
In addition, it seeks to fully develop the dramatic talent, skills and abilities of its members. Students from Years 7 to 12 are invited to be part of the programme.
Members of Youth Theatre perform at Drama showcase evenings and participate heavily in College musicals and musicfests.
The Art programme involves students working together and individually to create and present a range of visual art forms. Students undertake collaborative projects for areas in the school and explore personal art making projects to gain a better understanding of themselves and their world.
Involvement in the Visual Arts teach students that problems can have more than one solution and that questions can have more than one answer.
The Visual Arts celebrate multiple perspectives and that there are many ways to see and interpret the world. Through art, people can express their innate creativity and communicate concepts visually in their daily lives.
Art co-curricular ranges from short term commitment in the Primary school to a full year commitment in Years 7 to 12 and depending on their age, students can particpate in Primary Art, Artlings (Middle School Art) or Art Verve.
