Performing Arts Scholarships
Performing Arts scholarships fall under three sub-sections: music, dance or drama. To be considered for the Performing Arts category, students must register for, and complete, the EduTest Scholarship Examination on Saturday 20 May 2017 AND submit a portfolio of evidence to support their application.
While students are pre-selected for auditions based on the strength of their portfolios, acceptable academic performance is also a significant element for Performing Arts candidates. Student records should demonstrate appropriate standards and consistent effort in other areas of student learning.
We strongly suggest that all Performing Arts portfolios include the following information:
- Academic records for the past three years
- AIM / NAPLAN data
- Information on the student’s background and experience within their Performing Arts strength area e.g. music/ dance / drama. This can be a video or short film (30 seconds to two minutes) or a CD, DVD or USB.
- Relevant competition participation and performance records including local, state and national competition levels
- For music applicants: Evidence of achievement at Grade 3 or above AMEB (or equivalent) exams in the form of certification and exam transcripts
- Evidence of the student’s contribution to their current school programs including any co-curricular activities
- Details of student involvement in broader community activities
Candidates with strong portfolios will be selected to perform at an audition on Saturday 27 May 2017. Following the audition process, students will be shortlisted for Campus interviews and for recommendation to the Headmaster.
Note: Academic applicants may also be considered for Performing Arts where they have submitted a portfolio of evidence.
