Extra-curricular Performance Program

​​​​​​Creative Arts at Chisholm Catholic College challenges and excites students creatively through various Visual Arts, Dance, Drama and Music programs.  Students are given opportunities to excel throughout the school year which aim to inspire, build confidence and foster collegiality amongst students.  In addition, students who engage in performance reap benefits which may assist them far beyond their years at the College.  Quota Eisteddfod, Positive Minds Festival, Chisholm Day, Chisholm Under the Stars, Creative Arts Night, College Mass and Awards Night are just some of the places students are able to showcase their talents during the school year.​

​​Art Club is for everyone who loves creating, with House competitions and more.  The College runs a free Art Club ​​weekly throughout the year.  Facilitated by art teachers, the club covers everything from string painting to ceramics​.
The Chisholm Dance Eisteddfod Team is an audition based co-curricular program for students who have a passion for dance and performance.  The Eisteddfod Team is split into a Junior and Senior Team, each working towards various performances and competitions throughout the year.  In addition, students will have the opportunity to perform at events such as Chisholm Day, Creative Arts Night, College Musicals among others.​
Every non-musical year the College presents a play featuring students from years 7-12 that show promising talent on the stage.  Any student can audition or be involved in behind the scene opportunities such as costuming, sound and lighting, set design and construction, advertising and make up.  In addition to performing at school students also enter external festivals such as the Beenleigh One Act Plays festival.​
The College Musical occurs every second year.  Any student in the College can audition for a lead, supporting role, chorus, or band position.  Students may also become involved in other ways such as backstage assistants/manager, lighting and sound technicians, set design, photographers, make-up and costume, etc.  All students are invited to participate and those studying Music, Drama and Dance are encouraged to take a role. 
Ensembles at the College involve students volunteering​ to become part of co-curricular music groups which operate before and after school on different week days.  Students do not need to be learning an instrument or studying class room Music at the College to join any of the ensembles.  These ensembles are directed and organised by the College Music Staff and External Tutors and are free for all students to engage in.​
