At Salvation Tree, we give equal importance to co-academic subjects that include visual arts, performing arts, physical education, and technology. These add significant value to the quality of students’ experience at school and also introduce them to various opportunities for their growth and development.
Children are visual learners — they learn to make sense of the world around them by exploring and investigating what they see. As their verbal language skills are still developing, art and crafts are ways by which they learn to express and articulate their thoughts.
While children begin to understand form and colours, different media are used to express ideas. They also learn to develop an understanding of beauty and aesthetics through art. As the purpose of art is creative expression, art never consists of copying, colouring, or pasting within templates made by the teachers; but is always the child’s own original work.
Visual and Performing Arts are tackled in an integrated and comprehensive manner through purposeful play. Expressive arts and design involve supporting children to explore, and work with, a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing them opportunities and encouragement to share their thoughts, ideas, and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, dance, role-play, and design and technology.
Exploring and using media and materials: Children sing songs, make music, dance; and experiment with a variety of materials, tools, techniques, colour, design, texture, form, and function
We wanted to introduce our students to the mesmerizing world of theatrical arts which includes acting and stagecraft, so we incorporated Dramatics classes in our educational module. The class intends to sharpen the natural talent of the children while they learn to express themselves in new and interesting ways
Dance means so much more than fun and entertainment. It is an exercise of the body, mind and sole, dancing is always a happy time. In many ways, dance is a matter of discipline. At STS, we have a unique and enriching way of educating the children. Dance classes are a treat that helps maintain the balance between academics and fun.
Chess is a game which involves strategy and an alert mind. Among all other co-curricular activities that we introduced, Chess club is special as the learning the game will sharpen the children’s brain.
Arts and crafts:
As much we encourage STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) subjects, we also encourage Arts and Crafts among our students. To make sure that our students are not left behind in any sphere, we introduced Arts and Crafts classes as a co-curricular activity.
STS hope that the students enjoy co-curricular activities, learn new skills, and grow in knowledge and wisdom.
