Art learning is important for every human being. Children all over the world draw long before they write, in fact, writing would never be able to develop without first understanding pictures as symbols.  At NDSHS’s Junior Secondary campus there is a focus on teaching visual literacy. To be considered literate in the 21st Century, one needs to be visually literate.
Course Content
Students at NDSHS’s Junior Secondary Campus begin with observation of the real world: recording, analysis and creating a visual response to their surroundings through Drawing, Printmaking, Painting, Ceramics, Sculpture, and Mixed Media. Part of the joy of the elective rotations is that you don’t just study Art or Design: you make it. This is true for all of the electives at the Junior Secondary Campus.
Special Features
Each year students from the Junior
Secondary Campus enter their artworks into the Noosa Country Show held in the Pomona showgrounds.
In 2014 students from the Junior Secondary Campus won first, second and third prize in both the painting and the drawing categories as well as Best In Show.
Students also have an opportunity to hang their artwork in the school’s library throughout the term.
