What is the "Inspire to Lead: An Artistic Exploration" exhibition about and who will be participating?

Why do you believe it is important to promote art and culture at schools? How heavily do they feature in The Island Private School of Limassol’s curriculum?

Promoting art and culture at schools is important for a lot of reasons. Firstly, it fosters creativity and self-expression among students, allowing them to explore and develop their artistic talents. Secondly, it encourages critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as art often involves experimentation and innovation.

Additionally, exposure to different cultures through art can broaden students' perspectives and promote understanding and tolerance.

I also want to add that according to International Baccalaureate approach the arts are equally as important as other subjects and equally valued by us as a school. Developing creativity is a key part of children's development and flourishing as young people
