Creative and Performing Arts 

All Saints' College is a community where the creative, unique and individual talents of every student are greatly appreciated, embraced and encouraged. All Saints' College is very proud to offer a range of performance, drama, dance, music and visual arts extra-curricular activities for students to support their development and growth.  

ASPIRE 

ASPIRE is a diocesan program of excellence for students in the performing arts arena. Students audition in November each year for a place in the vocal ensemble, instrumental ensemble, drama ensemble and dance ensemble. Those who are selected attend weekly rehearsals in Semester 1 to prepare for a showcase in August each year.    

DioSounds 

DioSounds is an annual event held at the Civic Theatre each year. It showcases the talents of the students and programs on offer at schools throughout the diocese. Each year, approximately 50 students from the St Peter's performing arts program and 46 students from the St Mary’s performing arts program are selected to perform in the showcase.  

School Musicals and Plays  

Each year, All Saints' College alternates between putting on a school musical and a school play. Students who audition for the musical/play are advised that they are undertaking a major commitment of their time. In 2016, students slicked back their hair for the musical production, 'Grease'.   

Ensembles  

St Peter's has a range of ensembles that rehearse weekly during lunch times. These include an all-male choir, a mixed choir and band. 

St Peter’s Performs and St Mary's Shines 

Each year, each campus holds an evening where students have the opportunity to shine through their performances. All students are invited to participate in the aptly named 'St Peter's Performs'. Students audition in order to perform on the evening. Items include rock bands, gymnastics, contemporary dances, drama skits, fashion parades, aerobic performances and music film clips produced by students.
