Lomagundi College Primary School believes that The Arts are as important as academics and sport.
Music, drama, and art form the basis of our cultural programme which allows students to express themselves in a different and unique way. Each and every child is given the opportunity to perform in front of an audience during the course of the year. From the Allied Arts, where they get to read a piece of poetry in front of an audience and receive constructive criticism, to organizing and participating in fundraisers and singing in Choir Eisteddfods. There are many avenues for your child to explore their cultural side with us, as listed below.
We have a dynamic team of teachers in the Music Department and offer opportunities for group and individual participation, at both class music level, and in individual instrument lessons. From Pre-Primary to Grade 7, every child is involved in various exciting music activities during the week. All grades have the opportunity to learn more about the elements, theory, and history of music. We place a strong emphasis on participation, and performance opportunities are embraced eagerly.
In addition, we offer individual tuition, at an extra cost, on a variety of instruments including piano, recorder, guitar and marimbas. Private lessons are combined carefully into the school day. Music students are encouraged to perform during school Assembly in front of their peers, as well as at a number of Eisteddfods, and at formal and informal events where soloists and choirs have the opportunity to perform.
The development of confidence is important and we try to expose children to various styles of drama. Drama classes also provide an interactive way to learn more about the local Shona culture and grow our students’ knowledge of traditions and cultural events. The Grade Six and Seven classes produce a play in the first term. A few of our recent productions include: High School Musical, Shrek, Lion King and Aladdin and all of these productions include a full musical accompaniment.
The Infant department perform a Christmas play in the third term for their parents as well as putting together a “Grandparents day” where their grandparents enjoy a cup of tea while watching the children perform.
Large-scale productions which involve all the school children are a highlight of the school calendar and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone participating.
At Lomagundi College Primary School, we offer our pupils opportunities to develop their artistic side and once a week, children have the opportunity to participate and select a club of their choice. Club members stay with the club throughout the course of the term.
