Rich in history and cultural tradition, the arts play an important role in education—both for their intrinsic value and their ability to enhance the overall development of a child. Exposure to music, dance, theatre and the visual arts enables personal, social and intellectual growth; allows for new ways of communicating ideas and feelings and improves cognitive capacities and motivations to learn.
At The Flora Dale School, co-curricular activities in this sphere include music, dance and theatre. These are conducted as group activities, rather than on an individual basis. School outings to the theatre and places of cultural and historical interest are organised from time to time.
