'The Arts offer different ways of 'knowing' that embrace divergent ways of thinking. Divergent thinking encourages adaptability, flexibility, self-reliance, initiative and team work.'
In all our Arts offerings the focus is on the communication process, understanding and presenting. As a result, students will be better equipped to understand and respond to their environment and the range of inputs they are constantly exposed to.
