PERFORMING ARTS

Each week all classes visit the Performing Arts room for a scheduled lesson conducted by our Performing Arts Teacher. Performing Arts allows the students to extend fundamental values and use the Integrated Curriculum explored in the classroom.  When rehearsing and performing, students extend and consolidate their knowledge of:

  • Physical movement and coordination with dance and coordination, whilst performing on instruments.

  • Essential public speaking skills with drama.

  • Mathematical skills with rhythm and beat.

  • The splendor of language and poetry and the magic of how words are woven into song.

  • Higher order thinking, such as allowing students to think and create in complex patterns, question their contribution, as well as others, in performances and explore how they can improve and make their performance the best they can.
