Music & Performance

Music is integrated into language teaching, whether it is through songs or through rhythms, combined with poetry. We are very fortunate to have a musician (violin player) as an Arabic teacher. He soothes the class with playing the violin and connects the beauty of the language with the beauty of the violin.

We are also starting a choir, doing songs with children, to see their tone of voice and discover their interest. After getting in practice, the teacher would like to do a musical at some point.

We would like to give more music classes, but we don’t have many instruments, because they are very expensive – that would be a project for the future. Maybe we will be creating instruments with the children soon.

Performance is integrated in many classes and workshops. Theater for example is integrated into the science workshops, so the children learn how to express their learning in different ways.
