Knowledge of musical theory, singing, understanding rhythm and a knowledge of musical instruments are essential factors in developing the whole child and it is for this reason that we offer class music lessons incorporated into the weekly class timetables for all children in the Preparatory School.
Chesterhouse participates in the Tygerberg Eisteddfod in all the disciplines ranging from drama to music and art; we have two choirs in our Preparatory School and our school holds a musical and dramatic production every two years ensuring that every child from the youngest to the oldest has their moment to shine.
Clubs and Societies within our Cultural Programme
Within our philosophical educational beliefs that children must be exposed to many different facets of life, we have introduced a Clubs and Societies programme that is run on a Friday during the school day. This allows for children to explore other talents and interests and breaks from the academic programme. Every term, the programme changes dependent on the season or the children’s and teachers’ requests. This programme focuses on the children from Grade 3 to Grade 7.
