Creative Arts & Technology 

Fostering creativity and personal expression

We offer an exciting variety of opportunities for students to express themselves and interpret the world around them through creative arts and design. From our enriched music, drama and arts opportunities to our innovative design technology classes, each girl is able to find the medium that allows her to share her creative energy. Through these experiences, girls develop confidence, flexibility, critical thinking and collaboration skills.

Grade 8-9 Production

Hoodie

Students have the opportunity to participate in an annual production featuring Grade 8 and 9 student actors and designers along with outstanding contributions in directing, lighting and sound from students in Grades 8 to 12.

Hoodie is an ensemble vignette play that examines self-image and individuality by Canadian Playwright Lindsay Price. “This shirt has to show everything there is to know about me, my absolute coolness, and demonstrate my abilities to reach the highest rung on the in-crowd ladder.” Students face a tornado of questions every day. What do I wear? What if I wear the wrong thing? What is she wearing? What do I look like? Stop looking at me! Hoodie examines image and identity in vignette style and poses what may be the most difficult question of all – do I stay in the clump or do I stand alone?

Grade 10-12 Production

Mamma Mia

Students have the opportunity to participate in an annual production featuring Grade 10-12 student actors and designers and behind the scenes in directing, lighting and sound. 

On the eve of her wedding, Sophie Saridan seeks to discover the identity of her father, bringing three men from her mother's past back to a Greek island they visited 20 years ago. A mother, a daughter, three possible dads, and a trip down the aisle you'll never forget! The cast of Mamma Mia! as they performed an enchanting tale of dreams, love, laughter, and friendship - all to the pop melodies of ABBA's timeless hits.

This musical featured a live band and sing-along showing.

Middle School Musical

Mary Poppins Jr. 

Grade 6–7

Students have the opportunity to participate in an annual musical production in the Junior School. Girls learn the basics of acting, focusing on movement, voice and improvisation. 

This year, the school joined Jane and Michael Banks as they experience the wonder of the world as seen through the eyes of Mary Poppins, England's most mysterious and magical nanny. The whole Banks family has something to learn from Mary and a cast of colourful characters. As Mary Poppins says, "Anything can happen if you let it!"

Showcasing Talent

“It’s a great bonding experience to have that sense of community early in the year. We had a student assistant director, Cameron ’19, and one of her roles was to create that bond and to make sure everyone was included,” says Sarah Burgess, Teacher, Creative Arts & Applied Skills, Senior School.
