Marist offers a number of opportunities for students to participate in a wide variety of creative and cultural activities that sit outside of the classroom learning experience, especially in the music and performance arts areas.
The twin highlights of the Creative Arts co-curricular program, staged on alternate years, are the major musical production and the arts festival.
The biennial Arts Festival is on again this year. Check back here regularly for updates on what is happening in 2013.
In 2012 the College staged The Great Australian Rock Musical, by arrangement with David Spicer Productions.
Congratulations to all for a great show!
Well done to the entire cast and crew for a musical spectacular in 2012, especially student director Samantha Cordwell, Mrs de Jonge, Ms Helen Marie, Ms Grey, Mr Lamb, Mr Richards and Mr O'Connell. The musical was a great hit, with capacity crowds across most nights. The College would like to thank the audience for their wonderful patronage of this traditional school event. Many thanks also to the VET Business class who assisted with publicity material.
Our ambitious and effective co-curricular music program provides many opportunities for students of all ages and abilities to progress their musical development.
Every year more than 200 students are involved in musical ensembles and groups. The College has senior, intermediate & junior concert bands and a number of smaller ensembles.
Many of our music performers take part in external competitions such as the Rock Challenge, Tulip Festival, Battle of the Bands and local eisteddfods. Our musicians provide the music for all College Masses and special occasions such as Speech Night.
The College provides opportunities for students wishing to pursue dance as a recreational and social activity. Sign-up notices for Salsa Club will be posted on the Student Notice Boards.
The Arts Hub at the College is host to the Clay Club on Wednesday afternoons 3–5 pm. Students can have lots of fun making pots, sculptures and other clay works by hand, or learn to throw on the wheel. See Mrs Horniblow in the Arts Hub for more information or to sign up.
