As a mum to three boys, I have always valued the importance of a broader curriculum, one that includes the creative arts; giving children opportunities to explore, grow and express their emotions.
My children are now adults. One works in the city and two have followed the creative arts as their chosen professions.
Why am I passionate about creative arts?
I completely appreciate the importance of academic learning, but I also strongly believe that children need to develop as individuals with the creative arts supporting in many ways; with communication and language development and, most importantly, personal, social and emotional behaviour.
