The Arts

The Arts stands as a vital Area of Learning within the curriculum, comprising three distinct strands: Art and Design, Drama, and Music. Through engagement with The Arts, children's creativity is nurtured, prompting them to articulate their thoughts, emotions, and perceptions of the world through various mediums such as visual art, sound, drama, and dance.

Teachers are tasked with facilitating children's development of knowledge, understanding, and skills in:


1)Art and Design




The Arts provides opportunities for children to develop:

  • their curiosity, imagination and creativity;
  • their self-confidence and self-esteem;
  • their artistic, musical and kinaesthetic abilities, including gross and fine motor skills;
  • verbal and non-verbal modes of expression;
  • an appreciation of the beauty and wonder of the world around them;
  • their ability to make informed choices and decisions; and
  • an awareness of other cultures.
