Subjects

At Mordialloc College, Performing Arts is a core subject in Years 7 and 8. In Years 9 and 10 students are able to choose from a variety of performing arts subjects.

Students can participate in the Instrumental Music Program.

They are withdrawn from their normal program and given instruction by qualified teachers in small groups.

Students also become members of the various ensembles formed within the College. These ensembles regularly perform for visitors as part of the Performing Arts program and at other after hours functions.
Involvement in this program is determined in Year 7 where students hire instruments. From Year 8 onwards it is expected that students provide their own instrument.

Years 11 and 12 VCE

VCE Music, Drama and Dance are Year 11 and Year 12 VCE subjects and involve both performance practice and theory. Students undertake a variety of written and practical examinations.

Visual Arts

Annual art exhibitions and displays provide an opportunity for students to present their works to the wider community.

Each year, the visual arts showcase brings together artists from Mordialloc College, the wider community and local primary schools. Sculpture, pottery and design programs draw many students and the community to our school and Photography and Media Studies curricula add depth to the range of skills students develop.
