Creative & Performing Arts
Bingham Academy's Arts Department is flourishing and growing, and seen and heard all over campus!
At the elementary level, our Creative Arts team is pleased to currently offer general music lessons for our KG1 – Grade 3 students and recorder lessons to our Grade 4 and Grade 5 students twice a week. The elementary school also performs a Christmas Concert.
All of our elementary students attend art lessons twice a week. Their creations are displayed in the classroom and during concerts and other special class/school events. Our Grade 3 students also have an opportunity to perform a play.
Our Grade 6 students participate in one music class a week. This grade is currently learning to play the ukulele.
Grade 7 students have one music class a week while Grade 8 students have two music lessons a week for half the year and two art lessons a week for the other half. These are general music lessons with varying unit topics and focus on group work, playing instruments and composing.
Our middle school students also participate in a Christmas Concert.
Drama lessons are also offered to our Grade 6 – 8 students. All three age groups perform a play at the end of the semester. Grade 6 performs a short play, Grade 7 devises children’s theater and grade 8 performs a short version of Shakespeare.
Art lessons are given one hour a week for Grade 6 and Grade 7 students and two hours a week for a semester for our Grade 8 students.
In addition, any middle schooler with interest has an opportunity to join the worship group for chapels.
In high school students can participate in IGCSE Music, Drama or Art. The course offered depends on the interest of the students. Students engage in these courses for 4 hours a week for two years. If music or drama is selected, a performance is expected in both courses.
