Performing Arts

Through the Performing Arts program at William Ruthven Primary School, students have the opportunity to communicate their ideas or expand their mind creatively through music, dance and drama.


The purpose of the Performing Arts is to give the students a creative outlet and challenge them in new and exciting ways they may not have thought they were capable. Performing Arts classes enable the children to express themselves through words, gesture and body language and teach them confidence to get up in front of their peers and perform their own and others’ pieces of work. They learn to respect the work of their fellow classmates and give constructive feedback on how they can improve their work and progress to the next level. 


Every second year a whole school scipted concert is performed families and friends. The scripted concert provides wonderful experiences for students in prop building, costuming, performing and many other ‘behind the scenes’ roles. It is also a wonderful opportunity for the whole school community to celebrate the many talented students we have at William Ruthven Primary School.


Every year, all students have the opportunity to perform at our end of year celebration.
