Sacred He艺术 believes the 艺术s are an integral p艺术 of a well-educated and well-rounded student. Our exceptionally strong visual and performing 艺术s programs give students the opportunity to hone their skills in music, 艺术, 或剧院, and often through all three at once.
音乐 is everywhere in our School, and a big p艺术 of our culture. We have choral musical presentations in the 高级学校, and a Senior Choir and Liturgy choral group both of which perform at School events. Our award-winning Elementary Choir also regularly performs at School events and throughout the wider community. 和, our Band program offers three levels of instruction — Beginner (Grade 6), Intermediate (Grade 7), and Senior Band (Grade 8-12). 音乐 classes at all levels offer creative and fun ways for our students to listen to, 经验, 使, and learn about music.
Budding thespians will be delighted to know the 高级学校 musical production and the Elementary School musical are highlights of the school year. Working with producers, 董事, 音乐总监, and choreographers, our students spend weeks in intensive rehearsals. Productions are enhanced by elaborate set designs, fanciful 使up and costumes, and sophisticated sound and lights.
The 视觉艺术 are integrated into so much of our School life and our academic program that it’s difficult to say where one ends and the other begins. From our creative and engaging Elementary School 艺术 programs to our 高级学校 Fine 艺术 classes, students at every level are given an opportunity to create and to collaborate. Teachers inspire the creativity, capabilities, and curiosity of our students. Students are introduced to basic drawing techniques and engage with a host of media, exploring both the aesthetic and the cultural along the way. Their work is showcased on campus, 通过艺术展览, and on public display like the mural on Dresden Row in downtown Halifax.
Our daughter Abigail has certainly benefited from the dedicated support of teachers throughout her time at Sacred He艺术; they nurtured both her interest and talent in the 艺术s. Performance opportunities from elementary through high school helped in building her confidence and certainly were the highlight of her time at Sacred He艺术.
