“To practice art, no matter how well or badly is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.”
– Kurt Vonnegut, an American writer
Art edcuation is truly a chance for students to express and demonstrate their creativity, their communicaiton skills, their collaboration with others, their self-discipline and their self-confidence. This is why Sekolah Victory Plus holds regular student performances. This year our parents and teachers were treated to a version of Pocahontas.
All of our Primary School Students were involved and hard at work practicing several times a week for the last few months. There was screaming, there was tears and there was some laughter; and that’s just from the supervising teachers!
I know that everyone enjoyed themselves, as well as appreciating the students’ hard work, perseverance and creativity. Of course, everyone needs a ‘thank-you’, but in particular this production would not be possible without a producer and a director, so thank-you very much to Ibu Dewi and Ibu Lita.
Traditionally, one does not wish a performer good luck, but instead we said to all of our performers on the day, “Break a leg!”
