Shining Stars

Shining Stars is a creative arts program for Kindergarten to Year 12 public school students with disabilities. Shining Stars provides opportunities for students to engage in a relevant and meaningful arts education program that caters to the needs, interests and abilities of each student.

Students develop knowledge of the creative arts curriculum, life skills, performance skills and confidence as they create a dance performance piece.

During this program, students participate in a series of workshops where they can build creative art skills and form friendships.

Shining Stars Showcase

To celebrate the completion of Shining Stars creative arts programs, students have the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned in the Shining Stars Showcase.

Students also perform and exhibit their work at festivals, conferences, fundraising events and exhibitions.

Teacher professional learning

Shining Stars provides professional learning opportunities for Teachers and School Learning Support Officers (SLSO) who are interested in developing their skills in Creative Arts education and in learning how to use and teach dance, drama, music and visual arts in the classroom to support students.
