Club activities are a part of the school curriculum. It is compulsory for every student from II std. to VII std. to join a club. The list of Clubs are as follows:
MUSIC WORLD CLUB – Middle School
Facilitator: Saroop Oommen (HOD – Music & Drama)
The course will introduce children to the power of music and how it can impact and empower an individual. The 3 basic tenets that underlay the necessity of this course are:
Music as a life Skill: Understanding music or even learning an instrument can be a versatile life skill; is sets a person apart in their future careers as creative people are highly sought after in today’s corporate world. Music is also the proven stress reliever worldwide and even scientifically proven to be a healer for the body too.
Choose the right instrument: Children may take up drum lessons or piano lessons based on a whim or pressure from parent, only to discontinue once the lessons get technical. The sad result is that a child will develop a prejudice towards music as a whole, just because the first choice of instrument was wrong! This course will help the child understand which instrument is best suited for their persona.
Music Education: A Grade in Music is no longer an unreachable target. Internationally acclaimed Music Education exams are easily accessible and currently Bethany High offers Western Music as a Group III subject for ICSE Board Exams (IX & X STD). The Practical qualification for a candidate to apply for the Course is Grade 4 in any Western Music instrument or Vocals. So writing music Exams has a direct impact to a student’s 10th board Exams!
Oratory/Lit Club: The Oratory club focuses on elocution, debating, public speaking, joke telling etc. and the Lit Club will focus on various literary activities like Mad Ads, Skits, Dumb Charades, Debates, Elocution, 20 Questions etc., which are part of the various Inter-School/Inter College Lit Fests. This Club is facilitated by Mrs. Prema George .
