For the past two weeks, a rich feast of art has been spreading across CKWA Primary and Secondary school.
The various arts activities not only reflect the diverse learning achievements and increase the arts culture on campus, but also enhance students’ creativity and interdisciplinary knowledge, giving teachers and students a different experience of campus life.
Spring Arts Week
A romantic arts week was staged in the Secondary this week. The colorful and creative works in the Arts Centre hall showcased the students’ artistic talents. The orchestra’s tune lingered on the campus. In the drama play, the audience felt warriors, war and peace in the time and space created by the actors. The active participation and enthusiasm of every student fully showed in the dancing time.
The Arts Week is not only a showcase for pupils’ learning achievements, but also an inspiration for them to continue studying in arts and create more values and ideas. Art programme is one of CKWA Feature Programmes, and through this, students have been able to perceive beauty, develop creativity and abilities, which will benefit them for life-long time.
Last week, the musical Shrek was staged at the Arts Centre as scheduled. The musical introduced the original Broadway rights and the small cast performed as many as 18 original songs in the nearly 80-minute show. The beautiful live stage props were also well received by the audience. From students’ expressions to teamwork and empathy development, all were well practiced and formed in this musical.
In G2 Math class, students have learned symmetry and axisymmetric shapes. During the Lower Primary visit to the Forbidden City in May, the students were introduced to the traditional craft of cloisonne enamel, and this inspired them to imagine and create ‘beauty’ by themselves. They combined the symmetrical shapes they learnt with the art of enameling to create beautiful and interesting laces and backgrounds for the art plates. In the process of appreciating the beautiful patterns created by the movement of shapes, the students further experienced the wide applications of axisymmetry, translation and rotation concepts in life and the beauty of mathematics.
