Northmead Creative and Performing Arts 2022 Open Day Presentation

After a successful student only Open Day with over 200 primary school students in attendance, we understand that parents are very interested to know about the vibrant and comprehensive learning enviroment that our dedicated and experienced staff have created here at Northmead Creative and Performing Arts High School.

Mr Mark Milne, one of our Deputy Principals, and who will be the Deputy Principal for Year 7 2022, will guide you through our Digital Open Day presentation as he outlines the excellent academic, sporting and creative opportunities that are on offer to the students of Northmead CAPA High School.

2022 International Women's Day - Prefects Presentation to students.

This year for International Women's Day, the school prefects decided to put together a presentation to show students in the class room. 

This presentation was put together by Caitlin Grech and Montgomery Cartledge. 

The committee decided that rather than just talk to the class they wanted to interact and have the classes be active participants, which is why they wanted to include the activities/games.

We hope you enjoy it.

School enrolment

Northmead CAPA High School proudly presents our first virtual Art Gallery Exhibition Tour of our students' Year 12 major works.

Mr Auckett will guide you through each work, giving you some insight into the creative minds of our talented students.

We think you will find the tour stimulating, thought provoking and rewarding.

Thank you to our Year 12 Visual Arts students for sharing not only their creativity but their personal journeys as well.

Duration 7.24mins
