Boroondara Park has a thriving and exciting Performing Arts program, which gives the students ample opportunity to become involved in the many activities that we offer. We currently have 2 well-equipped rooms. Our music room has an interactive whiteboard, as well as an array of tuned and untuned percussion instruments which are often used by our students. Our Dance/Drama room is an open space where the students can participate in the many drama and movement activities offered to them.
All students from Prep to Grade 4 have a 50-minute session of Performing Arts each week. The Grade 5 & 6 children have a 50-minute session of Music as well as another 50-minute session for Dance/Drama.

Children who learn an instrument in or out of school time are invited to be a guest performer during our whole-school assemblies. This is a fabulous opportunity for students to gain valuable performance experience in front of a supportive and friendly audience.
