Art and Culture
Most students at Namaste Academy and their parents are interested in studying Maths, English and the Sciences or Management. However, we believe that school is about more than just grades! School should offer the chance to explore literature, painting, dance & music.
The importance that Namaste Academy attaches to the arts – both Nepali and foreign – is clear from the drama performances that it stages as well as in the exhibitions of students’ artwork and the musical concerts that it arranges.
Of course, not all students are equally interested in the arts and some may not wish to learn a musical instrument or to paint, for instance. For these reasons, arts classes are compulsory for only a term to allow children to explore their interests at a young age. They can then opt to continue with these classes or to choose one over another.
Namaste Academy believes that School is much more than getting great grades. It should also expand students’ horizons so that they can continue to explore the arts later in life, building on the foundations laid by their School.
