The Diocese also offers a program for performers called ASPIRE. Combining the full range of stage performance areas – Dance, Drama, Vocal, Instrumental and Backstage – ASPIRE allows for gifted students to extend their knowledge and practise with like-minded people from other schools. ASPIRE culminates in a series of performances each year, allowing students to showcase their talents to the wider community.
