Students develop their creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communication skills. They refine their literacy, numeracy, ethical understanding and intercultural understanding, and develop self-belief and self-confidence.  

Students view and review performance throughout the Year 12 course. Students learn to engage meaningfully with others through the creation of a performance. Through focused collaborative practical learning opportunities, students refine their skills and increase their confidence as communicators by creating live, multimodal, oral and written products.
