The Creative and Performing Arts inspire our students to portray their ideas and emotions in a way that they cannot express through language alone. For many children, involvement in the Arts from an early age will turn into a life-long relationship. At SJI International, we ensure that we provide many opportunities for our students to engage with the Creative and Performing Arts, as one experience can make a connection with another discipline or subject within the Arts.
Through creating, performing, and responding, our students are guided to become confident individuals, global thinkers, and responsible citizens and we promote the Arts through a number of events throughout the year. These opportunities provide the platform through which they can embrace the wonderful disciplines of art, photography, dance, drama, and music.
On a weekly basis, we give our students the opportunity to perform in our school assemblies. Through solo, ensemble, or class performances, students have the opportunity to explore and share their abilities. This assembly is often the first exposure our students have to perform in front of a large audience, and what better audience is there than their supportive peers and teachers!
Prep 1 to Grade 1
Christmas Nativity, these delightful performances are performed intimately for just the class parents, that brings home beautifully the message and magic of Christmas.
Grade 2 & Grade 3
Global Family Festival, students have the opportunity to explore our cultural diversity, create performances and participate in a grade musical ensemble.
Performance of Expressions, each class takes on the planning, presentation and performance of a range of expressions to capture How do you See the World?
Musical Performance, students learn skills in stagecraft and presentation, acting skills, and musical performance.
Our annual Art Show provides the platform for all our children to showcase their artwork. All individual and class pieces are on display for families to share on a special evening. Viewing the range of art forms from all the Elementary children is truly a spectacular experience.
Creative and Performing Arts have the power to transform children’s lives. They grow in confidence, cooperation, commitment, excellence and joyfulness. We hope to awaken these virtues in every student within every opportunity they receive.
