The Unit of Allied Arts has social responsibility for coordinating specific art forms of Dance, Drama, Music, Art and Craft and Physical Education and Sports as part of the national curriculum of the school.

However, the Expressive Arts programme is not generally perceived to be as important as other subjects on the curriculum. In fact there are a number of factors that militate against the successful implementation of this programme. These include inappropriate physical facilities, limited teaching personnel and inadequate supply of instructional material and equipment.

Expressive Arts of Drama


Drama is alive, it is doing, it is being, it provides a medium through which an individual can express himself or herself. It is a process that helps students 'see beyond' the printed text.

According to Annie Kidder, “Creativity is one of the key skills necessary to prosper in the twenty-first century, and arts education is one of the best ways to foster creativity and student engagement. It teaches students to express themselves, work with others and take risks.”
