CREATIVE ARTS IN THE SPECIAL NEEDS CLASSROOM
Young people with a disability often experience barriers to quality arts education and professional arts practice.
Sydney Opera House in partnership with Accessible Arts NSW, Department of Education & Communities, Australian Centre for Child and Youth: Culture and Wellbeing (UTS) and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia are offering an accredited arts education professional development day.
Discover how dance, music, theatre and visual arts can unlock your students’ learning in stimulating and enjoyable ways. For those seeking to refresh their creative arts skills, ‘Creative Arts in the Special Needs Classroom’ will offer primary and secondary teachers practical ways to incorporate the arts into their classroom practice.
Teachers will have the opportunity to discuss latest research, participate in creative arts workshops, learn about professional arts education programs and meet key leaders in the arts and disability network. Catering and information packs will be available. There will be options for regional and remote teachers to dial into Sydney Opera House and participate via video conferencing.
The program will take place at Sydney Opera House and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Program registration and details will be available on Monday 4 February. Join the House:Ed mailing list to receive details.

INDIGENOUS LITERACY DAY LAUNCH 2013

Students at the launch take part in a Great Book Swap in the northern foyer of the Concert Hall. Pre-loved books are brought along by students and categorised by volunteers. For a gold coin donation, students can then choose a ‘new’ book to keep and enjoy.
