As an IB World school committed to providing a strong balanced programme, Arts forms a key platform for student learning opportunities.
Every child at SVP is involved in the Arts programme, covering the domains of visual arts, music and drama.
In a world where creativity, collaboration and problem-solving are key skills all leaders require, the Arts programme ensures that these fundamental skills are explored, developed and showcased in a variety of areas.
All students Grades 1 to 6 are provided with either a violin or cello, with each student involved in the instrumental string programme.
Music works in parallel with the junior visual arts programme, with both subjects enabling students to explore and express their artistic talents.
From Grades 7 to 10, students continue with their exploration of music, in conjunction with visual arts.
There are also opportunities to learn a cross section of instruments as well participate in our choir.
From Grade 11 onwards, students may select one Arts domain namely the visual art and music which best suits their interests and strengths.
Multiple Arts ECAs are provided throughout the year, across the grade levels.
We also provide lunch time and after school opportunities for our students to explore their artistic passions.
