This year Hesket Primary students will be involved in all aspects of The Arts curriculum, often in overlapping ways, e.g. aspect of dance will be covered in Hesket’s skipping program as well as being covered in our yearly concert. Drama and Music will be incorporated into our concert, however there a weekly Music program that will incorporate all areas of the Music curriculum, focussing on the learning of an instrument (ukulele). In the future, we hope to build on the instrumental program. Hesket Primary School in 2019, is part of the Song Room Music Program, leg by Lena Mitchell.


Students at Hesket are given the opportunity to explore Science in a hands on way. They explore the different Science dimensions: biology, chemistry, physics and digital technology. Students are encouraged to think about how and why things work. They are given the opportunity to ask questions to further understand the world in which we live.

During the year, students are given the opportunity to explore Science in an alternate setting with an excursion. For example in the past students have attended Quantum.
