Dear Village Family,
C. S. Lewis, in "The Magician’s Nephew," paints a magnificent picture of Aslan singing the world and all its beauty into existence. Much like Lewis, theologians over the ages pass down stories of God’s voice lifted in song, creating our world in seven days.
Throughout the Bible, song and dance are primary ways that we, His creation, glorify God.

In the International Baccalaureate® (IB) students develop through creating, performing and presenting arts in ways that engage and convey feelings, experiences and ideas. It is through this practice that students acquire new skills and master those skills developed in prior learning.

Involvement in the arts encourages students to understand the arts in context and the cultural histories of artworks, supporting the development of an inquiring and empathetic world view.

Arts challenge and enrich personal identity and build awareness of the aesthetic in a real-world context. Read more here

Our Spring Musical, Mary Poppins, Jr., brings together song and dance to tell a story of living life to the full in the everyday through the Banks family encounter with a 'practically perfect' magical nanny.
