Year 7 CAPA Enrichment Class

The CAPA enrichment class encompasses the NSW Board of Studies’ Drama, Music and Visual Arts syllabus content.  The course of study offers Year 7 students a combined creative arts experience.  After completing one year in the program students can then apply for an extension of this program for possible entry into the Acceleration program that runs at Lambton High School.

CAPA students will have the opportunity to explore their chosen art form in a wide variety of class room experiences and extra-curricular activities that run within the school community.  Public performance, mentoring and tuition from specialist teachers is available to all.

The point of difference around this program is that the students who are accepted into the program are identified as being talented and/or gifted in the Creative Arts and their classwork, programming and assessment in all subject areas will encompass their background, skills and talents.  Specific teachers in all the KLA will be specifically handpicked to teach this class and be able to cater to their preferred learning styles across all the mandatory subjects.

The CAPA Enrichment Model can be found on the link.
