Music 

Inala State School provides various opportunities for students to enjoy the world of Arts through activities including classroom music lessons. Students explore music from a range of cultures, times and locations. This facilitates the understanding of music as a purposeful form of arts and universal language which has no cultural and linguistic boundaries. Inala State School students have a chance to practise a wide range of musical instruments such as, and not limited to, xylophones, metallophones, glockenspiels, djembes, recorders, and ukuleles.   

 

"Where words fail, music speaks" Hans Christian Andersen  

 

 

Drama 

At Inala State School, students learn about drama and its conventions. The participation in drama lessons enables students to develop their communication skills, teamwork, and better understanding of human behaviour. Students perform various drama scripts about community, poetry, shopping, country, natural disasters, and dramatic transformations. These drama activities boost students’ imagination, creativity, and strengthen empathic reactions to various perspectives.

Dance 

Inala State School also provides numerous opportunities for students to learn about dance. In dance lessons, students explore meanings, interpretations, and socio-cultural contexts of dance as a form of arts. The range of themes the students communicate in their dances includes shapes, seasons, symmetry, landscape, and adventures. These dance activities benefit physical health, creativity, and emotional and cognitive development. Students are encouraged to express their emotions and energies in a controlled environment, which helps them to increase their confidence and self-esteem.
