Cape Town - School Report Question and Answers
What fine arts electives are available (music, drama, visual arts)?
Fine arts, music and drama are all available as elective classes during the school day. Unfortunately the small size of the school and class scheduling conflicts may prevent your child from actually getting to take fine arts classes. Classes are mostly only offered one time per year. Drama productions are only done as part of class so if your kid loves drama but isn't put into the class, they can't be part of the show. There are no open auditions. There is not a high school band, orchestra or choir. We really miss this. One very popular class is Marimba and they perform at all the school functions but this is a difficult class to get into. The approach to teaching the arts tends to be very South African which puts much more emphasis on theory than actual practice. For these reasons, I would not recommend this school to students who want to focus on the arts. This has been a disappointment to us. - Sep 2019
