Happy 2019 everyone and welcome to another edition of our newsletter!

It’s time to wave a goodbye to the old & embrace the new, full of hope, dreams and ambitions.  As we reflect on 2018 and think about our 2019 goals, it’s important to remind ourselves of some of the skills (The Three C’s) promoted by the arts which are important not only in academic success but life success!

  • Creativity – Giving children an opportunity to practice creative thinking, will prepare them to think naturally in their future career.
  • Confidence – Training in the arts gives children the required practice and experience to step out of their comfort zone.  It offers the opportunity for them to make mistakes and learn from them and ultimately to perform in front of large amounts of people.
  • Collaboration – Through the arts children practice working together learning the importance of their contribution towards a common goal.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and we hope you enjoy our content and most importantly share it with your friends and families.

Hope to see you at our next event.
