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.
