The culture of any nation is born and developed through the arts, and at Erindale this is no exception. The Technology & Creative Arts Academy (Creative Arts) strives to develop and continuously build upon the ever-growing strength of the visual and performing arts culture within the school and community. This is achieved through developing the skills, knowledge and experiences of our creative arts’ students.
Subject specific environs, up-to-date technologies and equipment and proactive, skilled arts educators combine to offer students a number of pathways to excite their curiosity and provide opportunities to excel in creativity, aesthetic appreciation, critical analysis, exhibitions and live performance.
The majority of the courses offered in TACA are practical in nature with a strong emphasis on vocational education, allowing students to develop the knowledge and skills to pursue a wide variety of career pathways. Additionally, students develop valuable skills for lifelong leisure interests and independent living.
This area has excellent facilities, which include a new state of the art fully operational training restaurant, commercial kitchen and coffee shop, modern and well-equipped wood and metal workshops and a refurbished textile workshop.
