The arts form an integral part of the curriculum in St. Gerard’s Junior School providing each pupil with the opportunity to participate in, and contribute to the rich cultural environment of our school.
Through the arts we express human experience creatively and imaginatively. Ideas, feelings, insights and experience are communicated through images, music, language, gesture and movement. The arts also afford our pupils the opportunity to respond as viewers, listeners or readers to the expressive creativity of the artist, the composer, the writer and the performer.
The experience of art deepens our children's sense of beauty and artistic expression and makes them more responsive to nuances of feeling, attitude and action. It is, above all, a source of endless enjoyment and fulfilment that can add enormously to the richness of their lives.
