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.

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!"

Middle School Musical

Stagecraft

Grade 6–7

Students who prefer to stay behind the scenes have the opportunity to plan, design and build props and costumes for the Junior School Musical. Using a variety of materials, such as fabric, paint, wire and foam, students develop their creativity as they help to bring the show to life.

Grade 8–9 Production

Into the Woods JR. 

Students have the opportunity to participate in an annual Grade 8–9 production. 

Into the Woods JR. was the fall 2018 production. In this lyrically rich retelling of the classic fables, audiences joined their favourite characters – the baker and his wife, who wishes to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and wind up changed forever.

Grade 10–12 Production

Clue

Students have the opportunity to participate in the annual Grade 10–12 production – either on stage or behind the scenes. 

March 2019 saw the production of Clue with "six suspects. Two murders. And a briefcase full of...missing evidence." On a dark and stormy night, six eccentric guests are brought together for a society dinner party, only to discover that their host for the evening is dead. Audiences joined the cast of oddball characters known as Mustard, White, Plum, Green, Scarlet and Peacock as they raced to find the murderer in Boddy Manor. 

Senior School Productions

As part of Graphic Design 12, students conceptualize and design posters for the two Senior School productions. 

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.
