ARTS & CULTURE
Class Music is enjoyed from Pre-Reception to Year 8. From Year 9 the students can choose music as a subject. Every class in the Junior School receives an hour of class music a week within the school timetable.
We offer tuition in:
Recorder | Piano | Strings | Brass | Flute | Clarinet | Saxophone | Voice | Percussion | Drum kit | Marimbas | Acoustic, Electric and Bass Guitar.
At Blouberg International School we have the following choirs:
Junior Choir (Year 2-3)
Senior Choir (Year 4-6)
High School Choir (Year 7-12)
Auditions are held for these choirs each year and we do various performances and Eisteddfod’s during the year.
Each year we present a musical production at the school, alternating between a High School and Primary School cast. This is a collaboration between the musical and dramatic arts and is a good platform for students to show off their talent.
At Blouberg International School we endeavor to unlock the talents of our students through various dramatic arts opportunities. Students are able to express themselves through stage productions of the highest caliber. Students are challenged and stretched through renowned works of all kinds, including classical Shakespearean masterpieces or modern productions like “Little Shop of Horrors”, on not only the school stage, but also stages such as the Fugard Theatre to broaden their experience.
CREATIVE ARTS & DESIGN
Art programs encourage students to be creative and use their imagination as much as possible.
The Cambridge IGCSE Art & Design syllabus aims to encourage a personal response by stimulating imagination, sensitivity, conceptual thinking, powers of observation and analytical ability. Students gain confidence and enthusiasm as they develop technical skills in two and three dimensional form and composition, and are able to identify and solve problems in visual and tactile forms. They also learn how to develop ideas from initial attempts to final solutions.
Cambridge IGCSE Art & Design develops a greater awareness of the role played by the visual arts in society and in history, broadening cultural horizons and individual experience.The Cambridge International AS and A-Level Art and Design syllabus considers expression and communication. Students gain an understanding of visual perception and aesthetic experience, and the ways in which art and design creates a language of its own.
Most of the work for this syllabus is practical or studio based, so that students can develop their abilities of observation and analysis of the visual world, sensitivity, skill, personal expression and imagination.
