Children are encouraged to express themselves as we foster their creativity. They learn to appreciate the various art forms and in the process, have fun.
The Performing Arts
Expression in Song Expression in Song is a musical project where children are taught and sing songs based on suitable themes. This helps build confidence and gives the children exposure on stage.
The Kindergarten Starters hosts an annual music festival to encourage and develop confidence and artistic talent in the children. While an element of healthy competition has been introduced, this festival promises to give children an early exposure to a charming, uninhibited theatrical experience.
Expression in Verse Elocution is a powerful tool. The school conducts elocution at assemblies, in small class groups and at school events and productions. Students take great pleasure in reciting their poems with style and fervour.
We use it to bring out meaning in speech, to improve pronunciation and to express humour. Not only does the activity give the children confidence and presence of mind, but it also helps their leadership skills with clear and fluent speech.
The Visual Arts
Expression in Colour Besides the performing arts, children have ample opportunity to nurture their skills and talent in drawing, painting, and handicrafts.
An art exhibition is held at the end of every academic year and the corridors come alive with vibrant colours bringing out the best in art and craft.
Presence of body and mind Growing in every way means training the body as well as the mind. Physical Education is, therefore a vital part of learning.
Through various sports and games, The Kindergarten Starters strives to instil a healthy sense of competition, discipline and sportsmanship.
The Kindergarten Starters Annual Sports Day is always focused on a theme. Most of the drill displays performed by the students reflect interesting aspects of this theme.
Budding athletes are encouraged to pursue their talents.
