The Arts at VG
VG has some of the largest subject music classes in the Eastern Cape: Gr 12 – 26, Gr 11 – 36, Gr 10 – 20.
Our 4 full-time music teachers offer tuition in the following instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola, Flute, Recorder, Marimba and Voice.
Ensembles: Choir, Orchestra, Marimba Band, Wind Ensemble and String Ensemble.
They learn about stage management, directing, choreographing, and the technical and backstage work (sound and lights) from one of our 3 Drama teachers and gain valuable opportunities to perfect their craft through our close working relationship with the Rhodes University Drama Department.
Learners who elect to take Art as part of Creative Arts in Grade 8 and 9, and Visual Art or Design in Grade 10 to 12 have the opportunity to attend classes at the Johann Carinus Art Centre. They can choose within the following categories for Visual Art: Painting, Graphic Art & Printmaking and Sculpture. For Design they can choose between Textile Design and Ceramic Design.
A variety of co-curriculars are offered at VG in the cultural sphere. These include:
Christians in Action
The Diversity & Inclusivity Committee
“As the Diversity and Inclusivity Committee we are devoted to promoting the idea of inclusivity within VG, as well as bringing to light the diverse backgrounds and identities of all our students.”
