CULTURAL ACTIVITIES

Irene Primary school offers Orff Orchestra where our talented children learn to perform at an extremely high level of proficiency.  They perform at our many Honours’ evenings and Cultural evenings to showcase their achievements.

The Junior and Senior choirs practice weekly and perform at our Open days, assemblies and take part in various eisteddfods and festivals.  We have had many of our choir members become part of the Jacaranda Children’s Choir and some have received scholarships for choir, at the best high schools in and around, Pretoria.

Irene Primary School showcases our amazing talent at an annual Cultural evening or Musical Extravaganza.  All our children from grade R to 7 are involved in this spectacular event.

Under the expert guidance of our dedicated Creative Arts teachers many of our visual art pieces are entered into competitions provincially and nationally.  The art is also showcased annually at a function organised by the GDE Creative Arts department.  At this function our children are exposed to art pieces created by children from all walks of life.

We offer a Toastmasters course to our grade 7 children annually which prepares them so well for public speaking in the future.  This culminates in our Gala evening where our Junior Toastmasters present prepared and unprepared speeches of amazing quality while parents and staff enjoy a delectable feast.

Irene Primary School prides itself on the total development of the child and our Cultural activities allow for love and nurturing of the arts to be ongoing.
