Take time to recognise and nurture your child’s creative streak.
We all know that feeling when you suddenly hear a song you love start to play. Endorphins pump through your system and help lift your mood — so singing your heart out really does warm the soul! No wonder then that they say learning a musical instrument is one of the best things you can do in life, and there’s no better time for kids to embark on a musical journey than with the support of their school.
Shrewsbury International School Hong Kong knows the importance and benefits that music can bring to its students, and has carefully designed its programme to nurture a life-long love of the art. Apart from it being fun to jam along to favourite tunes, there’s a wealth of other benefits for children learning music, including improved cognitive function, better concentration, reduced stress, enhanced confidence and improved memory.
Ingrained into nearly 500 years of history, Shrewsbury Hong Kong students have a unique opportunity to make connections, understand ideas, and practice the skills associated with a wide range of other curricular areas through music. Supplementing core lessons, pupils throughout the school engage in weekly choral sessions to further their understanding of musicality, rhythm and performance — you might even discover you have the next big star in the family!
From the moment your youngster walks through the doors, they will experience an education without compromise. Drawing from its rich British heritage while working alongside the English National Curriculum, the school has developed a seamless and personalised transition for students. A range of specialist facilities, designed exclusively for the use of primary aged children, ensures that Shrewsbury Hong Kong students are both engaged and inspired.
Every child is unique so the school has worked to develop a truly bespoke programme. Working closely with families, the school identifies and shapes the emerging ambitions of each student during their primary years. Pupils are encouraged to explore ideas (their own and others) as they discover and learn about their strengths. Through its nurturing and stimulating environment, Shrewsbury advocates that students learn from their teachers, and from everything around them — including their fellow students!
