Creative Arts gives our learners the opportunity to explore and to develop their creativity in a safe, supportive environment.
We nurture creativity through the visual and performing arts, namely music, art, dance and drama. Our learners are encouraged to express their thoughts and ideas with confidence.
Creative Arts is the foundation for a balanced learner promoting creative, cognitive, emotional and social development.
By the end of the Intermediate Phase our learners will have gained basic knowledge, skills and the appreciation of all the art forms, which will enable them to make an informed choice as to which of the art forms they would like to focus on in the Senior Phase.
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Pablo Picasso
