Junior School Co-curricular Opportunities

Performing Arts

Danebank students have many opportunities to explore, discover passions and pursue their talents in performing arts. Vast research acknowledges the many benefits to academic learning and wellbeing of the whole child that come with participating in the arts. Read more in the Co-Corricular Portal here.


Learning and performance opportunities are extensive and students of all ages can participate in additional musical activities, ranging from individual tutoring in instrumental to group ensemble, bands and choirs.


Our dance program exposes the girls to a range of choreography styles and prepares them for performances in school and in the wider community, for example through Eisteddfods. Junior Dance Troupe is open to Years 4 to 6 (audition requirement), practising before and after school.


Sport teaches girls commitment, respect, teamwork, the ability to set and achieve goals, and to be gracious competitors. Our girls are encouraged to do their best, learn new skills, be good team members and applaud others for their achievements.
