Beyond Academics

At Salvation Tree School, 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.

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.

Visual Arts:

Children explore art and design as a means of expression, communication, and reflection. While experimenting with different styles, they learn to adopt creative processes and practices that maximise their own learning; and develop an understanding of their individual talent, aptitude, and interest. These, in turn, form the basis for focus areas and expertise in selected art forms in the higher classes.

Performing Arts:

By creatively engaging in different art forms — and exploring and experimenting with instruments, dance and drama forms, and techniques (appropriate for the respective stage of development) — our students learn to respond to the beauty in form, movement, and sound; and develop an aesthetic sensibility. Moreover, by learning about Performing Arts practices from different local and national regions and the world, they begin to respect and accept cultural differences.

Technology:

At Salvation Tree School, technology is an extension of learning. Thus, it takes up many forms — from teacher led (effective use of technology tools to engage students in learning concepts) to student led (collaborative learning, simulated experiments, or designing new prototypes).

Physical Education:

The objectives of our PE programme are to help our students develop an understanding of the relationship between their physical and socio-emotional developments; inculcate healthy life practices and habits; encourage them to develop an interest (and expertise) in at least one sport (or physical activity) for lifelong practice; and through team spirit, sportsmanship, and fair play, build positive relationships with others.
