Teaching and Learning - Specialist Subjects


Dawson Park offers a number of specialist subjects being Science, Music, Physical Education and Art. In addition to the subject, we offer excellent facilities. We have a dedicated Science Room, Music Room and Art Room as well as a large, semi enclosed undercover area, two basketball courts and oval.

In Music, students have the opportunity to be in the school choir or the school band, and can participate in Dawson Park's got talent to showcase their skills. Students also have the option of receiving guitar or trumpet lessons.

For Physical Education, our students have the opportunity to participate in a large range of sporting events. These include interschool soccer, football and netball as well as cross country and athletics events. 

For the budding scientists and artists we offer an extensive science and visual arts program giving students the opportunities to develop their analytical/scientific skills as well as unlock their creative potential.

In 2018, we employed a technology expert to work with our teachers and students. This program will help develop '21st Century' skills like coding. This will continue in 2020.
