Holy Cross Primary

Expressive Arts

The Expressive Arts encompasses Art, Drama, Music and Dance. These subjects are taught by class teachers and assisted, when possible, by specialist teachers.  The Expressive Arts curriculum allow children to explore the creative and aesthetic dimensions of their development.

expartTeachers make every effort to integrate these subjects with other areas of the curriculum, as well as provide lessons to develop the skills in each of the areas.

In the course of the school year the children enjoy at least one performance by professional theatre groups, either in school or at nearby theatre to augment the Music and Drama curricular. The children themselves are usually involved in at least one performance for their parents and families – this usually takes place prior to  the Christmas holiday.


Children in Primary 7 are given the opportunity to develop their swimming skills at Kilsyth Swimming Pool. In addition, various extra curricular activities take place after school; these include: Athletics, Choir, Netball, Badminton and Football.

Specialist teachers and our Active School Coordinators provide additional support in instrument tuition and sports development.

We make every effort to afford equal opportunities for boys and girls in all these areas.
