PINELANDS NORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL

Grades 1 - 7

Arts

Our outstanding Art Department nurtures children’s creativity in surprising and colourful ways.

Art washes away from the soul
the dust of everyday life.

Pablo Picasso

Visual Art

We offer Visual Art as an integral part of the curriculum. By using the elements of Art we teach our children to appreciate different art forms. Our focus on visual literacy gives our pupils the vocabulary to discuss Visual Art in terms of texture, form and colour.

Our after school Art Club gives children a place to unwind, hone their artistic skills and learn to master new ways of seeing.

You use a mirror to see your face,
you use art to see your soul.

Bernard Shaw

Speech and Drama

The benefits of drama are not limited to the skills children acquire through actively participating in one of our wonderful school plays. Drama also provides our children with opportunities to experience their thoughts and feelings and express these to others. Drama has a therapeutic effect as it helps pupils deal with their real life problems through role play.

At PNPS, drama lessons develop our pupils’ imagination and provide them with an outlet for self-expression. Drama increases self-respect, self-confidence, teamwork and co-operation. We use warm-up games, movement sequences and include various dance forms, mime and role play in our drama lessons.

Our annual Poetry Competition and Best Speaker’s Competition enable our pupils to showcase their talents. Our biannual school play affords every pupil the opportunity to appear on stage while staff members and parents also play their part to make this the highlight of the school calendar.

Children with a remarkable talent and creative flair for Drama or Dance have the opportunity to further their skills during extramural classes.
