Education and learning are much more than what takes place in the classroom. NPS-North provides students with varied opportunities to develop new skills and experiences beyond academics.
Arts education refers to education in the disciplines of music, theatre, dance and visual arts. The arts are key component in improving learning throughout a student’s academic journey.
Our music curriculum is conducted by Furtados School of Music, the quality music education makes the entire learning process memorable. The instructors, are experienced and extensively trained to impart an exhilarating musical experience on a consistent basis.
Theatre is an influential factor; creativity can flourish and means of self-expression can be developed. It is important to have mandatory theatre classes because when a student participates, they benefit significantly, not only in terms of exploring the hidden ability to act, but also by shedding the inhibitions associated with performing in front of an audience.
Artistic dance education serves to stimulate conscious understanding of the language of movement and to develop aesthetic knowledge and skill in movement expression. This provides students with deep, thought-provoking experiences that combine many art forms. Artistic pursuits yield thinking patterns and abilities that transfer to other areas of the student’s life. A student who expands his artistic sensibility sees the world from a different perspective.
Public Speaking is essential for students from this current generation to become articulate speakers, well-groomed individuals, and to face the challenges of tomorrow. Our public speaking classes cater to unravel the individual personalities of our students.
PE is an integral part of the school programme which provides students with the opportunity to build physical fitness, learn important life skills such as discipline, persistence, teamwork and stress-management.
