The Education Act 1990 (NSW) sets out minimum curriculum requirements for primary schools. In particular, the Act states that "courses of study in both art and music are to be included in the key learning area of the Creative and Practical Arts." With the introduction of the Creative Arts K-6 Syllabus in 2000, this requirement has been broadened to include creative arts experiences in drama and dance which became mandatory in 2005. The unit of study, Creative Arts 1 provides students with an understanding of the importance of drama, music, visual arts and dance both as powerful learning and teaching strategies across the primary curriculum and as creative arts in their own right.
