At present, the school’s dining room is being converted into a visual an performing arts centre. This will facilitate the growth and exposition of the aethetic values that the students naturally have. The school has a Drama Teacher (part-time) and is pursuing a part time music teacher who will begin in January 2010. Drumming classes will begin this month as an extra curicular activity.
