Many schools offer Music, Drama and Art but what makes us different and sets us apart, is that these activities are not exclusive but forms part of our Academic and Co-Curricular Programme. It's those little extras that make Kyalami Preparatory special. We provide a learning environment in which not only the talented pupil can excel, but every child is encouraged to participate. Our Co-Curricular Programme develops the whole person and assists in producing confident, balanced young people. Our children are given a sense of belonging, self- respect and dignity.
The Arts and Culture learning area is designed to provide a catalyst for the love of music, and includes movement, dance, singing, drama and interpretation, performance tasks and visual art, in full accordance with the revised National Curriculum Statement of 2005. The emphasis is on fun and creative expression, but also on developing hand/eye coordination and addressing any other problems using music therapy techniques, especially in the younger grades. Music, drama and art are never seen as separate entities but are always placed in context within today’s society.
Individual lessons are available in several different instruments including piano, drumming, classical guitar and electric guitar, violin and voice. We have a school band where pupils can exercise their new found talents.
Kyalami Preparatory has two choirs: a Junior and Senior Choir which, at every opportunity, perform whether it’s Prize Giving, Assembly or at any other special function. Both choirs participate in inter-school showcase events annually. Music, Drama and Art are intrinsic to life. Arts and Culture is a vibrant learning area that has something for everyone!
