Sister Dorothy Prokes has created a dynamic arts based approach to educating the heart and soul of the child. To see it, is to believe that through a holistic approach to a traditional curriculum which has been integrated through the visual arts, music, dance and drama, students are supported to follow their best dreams and interests.
