Performing Arts plays an important part of both class time and extra-curricular time a Gad’s and are key to developing confidence and self-esteem. It is by preparing performances that many learn the value of team work and commitment.
We are keen to enrich the lives of our pupils by allowing them to explore their talents and to develop positive working relationships with others.
We encourage all pupils to think independently and creatively, while understanding that success comes with hard work.
As early as Kindergarten, children have the opportunity to perform on the stage. Children stage termly productions ranging from the Harvest festival, Christmas Carol Service at Rochester Cathedral, Spring Festival to the an annual Nativity.
Many of the school productions take place in our new school hall which is equipped with the appropriate staging, lighting and sound equipment. We also make use of the facilities at the Historic Dockyard Church in Chatham and The Woodville Halls, Gravesend for any large scale productions.
Dance at Gad’s takes place mainly after school; all students have the chance to enjoy a range of dance techniques classes from Ballet to Contemporary Dance and choreography.
