The School Hall is a multi-functional venue. School assemblies, drama productions, choir and musical performances, parent information evenings, book displays, badminton, judo and various other activities are hosted here. The venue is large enough to hold all 700 learners in an assembly but it is the ambition of the school and the Trust Fund to expand the size of the building to cater for the ever increasing space demands of our community and activities.
The high value we place on the arts (including music) in the development of the creativity and cognitive abilities of our children make the music room a highly valued venue. Well equipped with a variety of instruments, this venue is a popular one with our children. The musical talents often discovered in this room are a source of pride to all at the school. The development of our orchestra and Marimba Band are examples of how this venue has created an outlet for the enthusiasm and talent of our children. Many of our children also join the Westville Schools’ Orchestra where they are exposed to talented musicians (both children and teachers from other schools) who further encourage their love of music.
The confines of a classroom are sometimes not suited to getting the best work from children, particularly when group discussions are involved. There are a large number of outdoor group benches situated around the school and it is very common to find groups of our children learning, sharing and interacting. These popular venues create a vibrancy to the school learning environment.
The benefits of art in all its forms is highly valued by WSPS. The development of creativity and right brain skills are essential in this rapidly changing world. Not only is art a part of the academic curriculum, but Art Clubs are offered at both junior and senior level. These clubs encourage those who display interest or talent to extend their abilities. The well-equipped art centre overlooks Sefton Field and often one will find children working on their creations outdoors. The vibrancy and freedom associated with this venue makes it a popular place for our children to learn and create.
