Arts and cultural living

Arts and community integration is integral to our culture at Carinity Education – Southside, and we encourage students’ natural gifts and creativity through various activities. We often receive requests to display student artwork in public spaces and the cultural dance troupe is invited regularly to perform at functions outside the school.

Biennially we publish a book of student art, poetry and short stories. Our 2015 edition titled Memories…lost but not forgotten is available from the school at a cost of $20. Previous editions, at various prices are also available on request.

On the alternate year, we host an art exhibition where student works are displayed and available for purchase.


Students also participate in:

  • Youth projects and community forums;

  • Art exhibitions;
  • Poetry;
  • Serving at the Good Tukka Cafe at Carinity Aged Care – Wishart;
  • Wednesday afternoon sport; and
  • Sport carnivals.

We acknowledge the Indigenous peoples of Australia as the first Australians, custodians of land and country, and we welcome Elders regularly to our school.
