28 Aug Exploring your artistic side through GOTS
It was a day filled with colour and music as Global Oak Tree Scholars (GOTS) conducted a Performing Arts Workshop and Open Day at its City of Elmina Campus in Shah Alam on August 24.
On hand to showcase the ‘GOTS way’ were Gerard Abisheganaden, Head of Academics and Head of Curriculum at its secondary campus, hip-hop dance instructor Nicole Beins and arts and crafts coaches Nancy Khoo and Nur Fatin Athirah Mohd Narawai.
The children got to experience all three elements – arts and crafts, dancing and learning how to play the Taiko drums from Abisheganaden.
To cap off a wonderful fun-filled day, the children performed two dances and played the Taiko drums in front of their parents.
Abisheganaden, an accomplished musician for over 30 years, was delighted to share his expertise.
“They took to the class well. We practised two pieces – one simple and one not so easy – and they were not out of tune during the performance,” said Abisheganaden, who teaches the Taiko drums at the primary and secondary campuses.
“Hopefully, we can to do something similar in the future.”
GOTS co-founder Veronica Shepherdson explained to parents that the international school places importance on the performing arts to break the monotony of a
“These activities are part of our curriculum and are held midway through a school day as it helps to energise and revitalise the scholars,” said Shepherdson.
She was referring to the Funky Munky (primary) and Chill Out (secondary) classes which involve speech and drama, taekwondo, ballet, Taiko drums, hip-hop dance, Frisbee and board games.
The parents were also taken for a tour of the facilities to find out why GOTS is ‘Definitely Different’.
