They provide people with the opportunity for self-expression and to collaborate with others to produce stories and images that help us understand who we are and what we value in ourselves and those around us.
The creative urge and the capacity for experimentation is an important part of learning. We know that the changing economy is challenging traditional roles and traditional ways of working. The addition of Artificial Intelligence and automation means that schools and other learning institutions must teach their students how to cultivate and develop their creative thinking skills.
St Clare’s has a wonderful history in developing the creative and artistic skills of the young people in our care.
Through music, sculpture, painting, photography, acting, drama, scripting and theatre sports, St Clare’s gifted teachers develop a nimble and inquisitive mindset and creativity in our students that will serve them well in any aspect of life they choose to pursue after completing secondary school.
