Arts education is
associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking
and verbal skills. Arts learning can also improve motivation, concentration,
confidence,and teamwork. At Linden
Meadows we value arts education and have developed a comprehensive program for
students to have opportunities to be taught by our visual arts specialist at every
grade level, to be engaged in ORFF music education until the end of grade five
and in grades six to eight choose from our specialist programs in band and performing arts.
Drama is taught to all students in grade seven and eight. Performance opportunities involve musicals, concerts and celebrations of our
students’ work at music festivals, art expos and the sharing of dance.
