Arts ap­pre­ci­a­tion

The Sun (Malaysia) - - EDUCATION FOCUS - BY BERNARD CHEAH

SEKOLAH Sri Bes­tari man­aged to achieve the Sil­ver Diploma AGrade Award at its first par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Malaysian In­ter­na­tional Chil­dren Co­ral Fes­ti­val 2016 re­cently.

This achieve­ment au­gurs well for the con­tin­u­ous im­por­tance the school placed on per­form­ing arts. Sri Bes­tari has a long and colour­ful his­tory in pro­duc­ing as­tound­ing works of per­form­ing arts among its stu­dents – hav­ing suc­cess­fully staged nu­mer­ous plays such as Thum­be­lina, Jun­gle Won­ders, Beauty and the Beast, The Broad­way Mu­si­cal and The World of Dis­ney in­volv­ing its stu­dents in the school.

Per­form­ing arts – be it speech and drama, dance, mu­sic or vo­cals – should and must play a sig­nif­i­cant role in a child’s de­vel­op­ment as it has been proven that stu­dents who par­take ac­tively in the per­form­ing arts are su­pe­rior in their per­sonal de­vel­op­ment as well as at­tain­ing higher stu­dent achieve­ment.

Stu­dents tend to be more pro­fi­cient in read­ing, writ­ing and maths from such in­volve­ment as per­form­ing arts is a means to em­power the young to think in dif­fer­ent ways and have the added ben­e­fit as it aids them in their aca­demic per­for­mance. They also ben­e­fit from the so­cial in­ter­ac­tion with their peers, teach­ers as well as se­niors which of­ten help boost their con­fi­dence and mould proper so­cial eti­quette via in­ter­per­sonal skills.
