GWPS – Extra Curriculum Program Guidelines
Advanced Art classes aim to reward, challenge and extend artistic skills and knowledge with a selection of students who have demonstrated a strong interest in the Visual Arts. The precise skill set is determined by the project(s) designed to suit the learning needs of the specific student cohort. AusVELS standards Exploring and Responding (3-6), and Creating and Making (F-6) are targeted. Essentially, Advanced Art classes aim to further advance students’ artistic learning beyond their regular Art Class practice.
Apart from the students who are directly involved, Advanced Art classes also aim to inspire all GWPS students towards artistic excellence through the display of the artworks created.
Advanced Art is made available to all year levels. This is managed by rostering different age groups during each Term. Each year level has approximately 9 students participate in Advanced Art Classes for one term.
In 2017 Semester 1 year levels have been scheduled as follows:-
Term One - Years 3 & 4
Term Two - Years 5 & 6
First day of Term (Monday): Classroom teachers show the Power Point outlining the specific art project. Students are able to collect an Application Form
Week 1 of Term (Thursday): Application form is due to be returned to school.
Week 2 of Term (Monday): Students are notified whether they have been selected.
Week 2 of Term (Tuesday): Permission slips should have been returned so that classes can commence.
Approximately two groups of 18 students will be selected to participate in the program.

These sessions will be timetabled as part of the regular school day (not before or after school).
