‘An education rich in the Arts maximises opportunities for learners to engage with innovative thinkers
and leaders and to experience the Arts both as audience members and as artists. Such an education is vital to students’
success as individuals and as members of society, emphasising not only creativity and imagination, but also the values of cultural
understanding and social harmony that the Arts can engender’.

else that is taught’.
