Performing and Creative Arts

At Hale School, we explore the creativity inherent in every child.

Hale has a reputation for excellence in music, drama and visual art. Several Hale students have gone on to become professionals in their creative fields as actors, musicians, composers, producers, stage lighting and sound specialists, artists and more.

Across the School, there are specialist teachers in Music, Drama and Visual Art.

The opening of the John Inverarity Music and Drama Centre in 1999 heralded a new era in performance at Hale School. The Auditorium is a purpose-built space with high-quality acoustics for Music and Drama performances, which run throughout the year.

In 2024 the expansion of our performing arts program continued with the opening of the new Cygnet Theatre precinct, which includes state-of-the-art media and drama studios. 

Hale School is also the home of Redfoot Youth Theatre, which offers exciting and diverse theatrical opportunities to Hale boys in Year 5 to 12 and girls from any school in Years 7 to 12.

Hale School also has a proud tradition of excellence in Visual Art, with the annual Student Art Exhibition involving all year groups held every year, and student artworks consistently selected for display at the annual Year 12 Perspectives Exhibition held at the Art Gallery of Western Australia

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
