We offer our students many ways to become involved in the vibrant cultural life of the College. Whether they are interested in singing, playing a musical instrument, acting, or dancing, there are plenty of opportunities to perform.
Assumption College provides state-of-the-art facilities for creative students to learn techniques and grow their skills, talents and confidence.
The Hermitage Art & Technology Centre is a place of thriving creativity, with drawing, painting, textiles, sculpture and photography complemented by digital media labs and tech workshops.
Our annual Art & Technology Show is a gallery gala for our students and their parents, friends and peers.
Students have a range of performing arts to explore, with dedicated facilities such as the Champagnat Centre for music and the college theatrette.
Each year, we stage either a junior or senior drama production – and there’s always a long list of students ready to audition and work as support crew during rehearsals and performances.
Students in sessional dance classes, and those in dance classes from Years 9 to 12, are automatically involved in our dance concert. However, those that do not participate in dance classes are also encouraged to take part. Routines are prepared and costumes are provided.
There are four bands and four musical ensembles that students can join, depending on their year level, and singers can join the choir or work on their solo performances.
Our musicians and singers get to showcase their talents at our musical soirees and annual talent contest. They also perform at full-school assemblies and Masses, and join our dancers at the Assumption Day concert and Exchange with Sacred Heart College, Adelaide each August.
