Art, Drama & Music
Inspiration Through Beauty
From grades 1 to 8 music skills are taught through choral singing, solfege (ear-training), rhythmic dictation, music history, and listening to classical music. The students learn to sing beautiful sacred choral music, which they perform in rounds and in two-part harmony at school concerts.
Art lessons involve the use of various media and teaching methods. Our students learn different techniques and become trained to look for and achieve beauty in their work. The students are given opportunities throughout the year to proudly display their work at different events.
Drama classes are held weekly for our grades 5-8 students. In addition to learning the history of theatre and engaging in fun improvisation games and activities, the students work hard every year to prepare plays, one for the 5-/6 class and another for the 7/8 class. In the past these have included Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, Sophocles' Antigone and the medieval morality play Everyman.
