Hedland Senior High School proudly offers students the only after school arts program for years 6-12 in the Pilbara.

Through the passion of students and teachers in The Arts department we create and maintain an environment of enthusiasm, respect and imagination in a rich and dynamic artistic space.

With a focus on creativity, the Specialist Arts Program aims to enhance students understanding of arts forms and how they are constructed for different audiences. This allows for the demonstration of higher level skills and direct contribution to the surrounding local and wider community, further embedding The Arts as an area of academic rigour and cultural engagement at Hedland Senior High School.

The program runs as after school workshops from 2:30-4pm where students have the opportunity to participate in Production workshops (Visual Arts, Photography and Media) on Tuesdays or Performance workshops (Drama, Dance and Music) on Mondays, or both if they have interest in both disciplines.

Students will have access to unique activities delivered by highly qualified and creative Arts staff members. We promote risk-taking, investigation and questioning of students in the after school program to allow students to engage in The Arts and discover their creativity.

Students interested in participating in the Specialist Arts Program will be expected to attend every workshop and either exhibit their art works or performance at a Showcase at the end of each semester. Engagement in the program is an extension for students and will incur an additional cost of $75 for each semester to cover the cost of materials and resources.

Applications open in Term 4 of each year for the following year aswell as a Mid-Year intake for second semester. For an application, contact Head of Learning Area – The Arts Laura Francis on
