Creative and Performing Arts
The performing arts at SJI International are vibrant, engaging and relevant to our students. The arts programmes, both inside and outside of the classroom, develop and challenge students, producing outstanding achievements across the school and in the wider community. We believe that learning in the arts is a process of discovery where students engage with practical skills to develop their individuality and an ability to express and communicate themselves to build better, deeper and more connected lives. In our specialist classrooms and through a variety of productions, shows, workshops, trips, festivals and our MADDD (Music, Art, Dance, Drama, Design) Week students are never short of opportunities to express and develop their creative talents.
Our campus is home to numerous performance venues, including our School Hall, which was recently renovated with new lighting and sound equipment, and a Black Box studio. Our Glass Hall performance space has a stunning Yamaha concert grand piano.
Further, our Aesthetics Faculty offers an extensive range of opportunities to participate in Co-curricular Activities. These include:
- Symphonic Orchestra (our largest ensemble)
