THE students and teachers of Fairview Primary School banded together to celebrate the wonders of artistic expression last week.
The kids, from kindergarten to Year 6, took part in an array of arts and crafts activities for School Arts Day on Friday, September 16.
The event, held throughout the day, saw students of different year groups form teams and take on dance, drama, media, music and visual arts activities.
Fairview Primary School music specialist Ammie Wood said, in light of Griffin Festival of the Arts, the students have explored the merits of artistic expression.
“At our school we value the arts in a great way and encourage them to participate in arts at school as well as out of school,” she said.
“It benefits their learning in a huge, huge range of ways.”
Year 6 student councillor Raylee Cooper, in her speech, said art was important for student wellbeing.
“Dance, drama, media, music visual arts – they are wonderful things,” she said.
“The arts are where to express yourself and your feelings.”
