DANCE, MUSIC AND DRAMA
The school is committed to offering a wide range of co-curricular activities and trips that enable pupils to develop their social, sporting and cultural abilities. We believe these also foster their self-belief. Our goal is to help realize their potential through enjoyment and interest. It is then further honed by caring and involved members of faculty.
There’s always Drama at School!
At our institution, in both the junior and senior sections, Drama is taught as part of the timetabled curriculum and is also offered as a co-curricular activity.
Two junior school productions are staged each year in our high-tech auditorium, giving children a chance to perform in front of parents and fellow pupils. Senior school pupils can participate in two annual productions which are usually staged in a professional theatre. Past productions have included Grease, Guys and Dolls, Alice in Wonderland and Twelfth Night.
In addition to Drama, instrumental-music, ballet and tap-dance lessons are also available. A wide range of instruments are offered to the students.
All learners are given an opportunity to achieve an All-Rounder Award, presented at the end of the academic year, which recognises pupils’ participation in co-curricular activities.
Music for All
Musically minded pupils are in for a treat at our school. Our Music School has a high-tech auditorium, two teaching/practice rooms and two full-sized classrooms. The building features work stations with the most up-to-date computers and software, providing opportunities for innovative compositions and performances. Music is not only a key part of the curriculum for both our sections of the school learners. There are countless opportunities for involvement outside of timetabled lessons. Music activities take place every day of the week, from Monday to Friday.
Our music rooms are a hive of tuneful activity, playing host throughout the year to approximately hundreds of individual music lessons, band and ensemble rehearsals and concerts.
Our school has several choirs, orchestras, string-ensemble; a wind-band, pipe-band and flute-ensemble. These are all growing in size as more and more pupils are opting to learn instruments.
Those who want to perform have multiple occasions. Informal concerts are held at the junior school twice every term and all pupils have the chance to participate in them. The senior school has staged several concerts in the past academic years. Performances ranged from concerts devoted to string and brass instruments, to orchestral and specific competitive events. For instance, our band and choirs have regularly been invited to perform at various community events.
In various Dance clubs at our school, students use their bodies to communicate and express meaning through purposeful movements. Dance practice integrates choreography, performance and appreciation of and responses to dance and dance making.
We are extremely proud to have been honoured with patronage of renowned classical exponents in Bharatnatyam, Kathak and Odissi. Alongside daily classes in contemporary dance techniques and classical ballet, creative workshops often help shape learners’ artistic practice and develop their choreographic manoeuvres. Our dance programme reflects on a range of creative processes and investigates movement in its historical, social and cultural contexts that allows the flow of creativity.
