Fine Arts

At West Dalhousie School we strive to provide children opportunities to express their creative self.  We work to help children make connections between their learning at school and the world they experience beyond the schoolyard. Field trips and Fine and Performing Arts experiences are ways we enrich the learning experience of the classroom.  We strive to ensure that the "social" lives of our children in school are as rich and varied as possible. Opportunities to work together in different settings and to form new relationships broadens our understanding. The students at West Dalhousie School are afforded many extra-curricular opportunities and experiences within and beyond the school walls. We make this effort because we know that these social experiences are greatly enhance the growth and development of young children.

These are all examples of unique extensions of the curriculum in which our students are involved:

  • Authors visits
  • Quest Theatre
  • Artist in Residence
  • Outdoor School
  • Chevron Open Minds
  • Guest speakers from the community
  • Scientists In Schools
  • Experts in areas of study that are part of our inquiries
