The Elementary visual art program at International School Bangkok provides a framework for helping students learn the characteristics of the visual arts by using a wide range of subject matter, symbols, meaningful images, and visual expressions to reflect their ideas, feelings, and emotions.
The program incorporates art history, production, critique and aesthetics. The following skills and related techniques are developed throughout the program using a variety of media, such as: drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, and technology.
The elementary music program involves key music skills and related musical concepts in the five key strands of the curriculum. Many opportunities are provided for students to perform for each other and for whole school and/or parent audiences.
Through music we are able to transmit our cultural heritage and encourage students to become acquainted with other cultures. This is particularly important in an international community where cross-cultural experiences provided in part by the music program enhance ISB’s mission of developing caring global citizens.
Physical Education is an integral dimension of each student’s education that aims to enhance the physical wellness of each individual’s life. The Physical Education program teaches students how to demonstrate basic skills and concepts, and then successfully apply them in more complex and realistic contexts. It allows students to make increasingly independent choices about the activities and roles they pursue.
Each child has the opportunity to experience success in Physical Education and reach his or her potential within a safe environment, where managed risk taking is encouraged. They will relate to others in a positive manner and experience leadership opportunities while performing as individuals, in groups and in teams. Students will be encouraged to participate in creating healthy communities and environments by taking responsible and critical action.
It is expected that students fully participate in all aspects of the physical education program, including the swimming unit. In addition, all students must wear their PE uniform and sneakers on the days their class receives PE instruction.
