Arts

Showcasing creativity
and talent

CIS has a thriving and vibrant Arts programme which is integral to school life. We adopt a two-pronged approach to the arts: the curricular or classroom experience and extracurricular activities and performances. Arts activities (music, dance, drama and visual art) allow our students to explore, shape and communicate their sense of identity and understanding of the world, while developing creativity, self confidence, resilience and adaptability.

From Kindergarten to Grade 12, arts experiences build confidence and are the perfect avenue to showcase creativity and experience teamwork. Through the arts, our students are engaged in imaginative and productive activity as they explore different cultures; use arts as a form of communication; and learn about the elements of performance, production and stage and event management.

Arts opportunities include a range of musical ensembles and bands, choral groups, productions, performances and exhibits. These events run throughout the school year and across all divisions as appropriate. Our students also participate in regional events and competitions like the Singapore Youth Film Festival where two of our students recently won best overall film and best acting.

At times, performances and showcases are conducted in another language such as Chinese or French. This multilingual approach and focus provides our students with opportunities to practice another language, while developing multilingual skills and competency in second or third languages.

Facilities that support our thriving arts programme include fully equipped drama and dance studios, a 500-seat theatre (Lakeside), music and music practice rooms, and an audio-visual suite supported with the latest equipment (Lakeside).
