Sha Tin College Arts Festival March 21, 22, 23 March 2017


Dear Parents,


I wonder what skills you would want your son or daughter to have by the time they finish their Secondary Education? Would you want them to be able to deliberate, to create, to reflect, to agitate or to make judgments? Or would it be to clarify points of view, to entertain, to persuade, to inspire?  Or to be an excellent communicator, collaborator and leader?  When you consider this list of skills, they are all absolutely vital in equipping young people for the demanding, fast and ever-changing workplace.
It is our belief that all of these skills can be achieved through study in the Arts.  The Sha Tin College Arts Faculty would like to invite you to the Sha Tin College Arts Festival which will hopefully give you a small insight into the Arts at STC.
There will be a number of events taking place at lunchtimes and after school including; an Art Exhibition in the main hall until Wednesday 22nd, a classical concert on Tuesday 21st from 4.00pm – 5.00pm, dance and drama ‘Monologues and Solos’ on Wednesday 22nd from 5.00pm -6.00pm and sounds of Rock and Pop on Thursday 23rd from 5.30pm – 6.30pm. The main event will be taking place on Thursday 23rd March at 6.30pm.  It will feature music from the STC Orchestra, STC Choir, the Year 7 Choir, drama performances, a variety of dance performances showcasing a range of dance styles and films written, directed, edited and starring our own students.  There will also be a display of some of the amazing art work produced in school.  Due to the renovation work taking place at the College the various performances will be staged in different venues around the school therefore giving quite a different experience for the audience!
The Tuesday and Wednesday events will be free of charge but tickets must be purchased for the Thursday evening performance.  The cost of tickets is $50 for adults and students.  This cost will include entrance and refreshments.  If your child is in the Year 7 choir, please note that they will be performing in the second half at approximately 7.30pm.  If you would like to only come for the second half the cost of the tickets is $30.  Tickets will be on sale from Tuesday 7th March from the White House at break times. Payment is by student Octopus card only, no cash or cheques.
We hope you are able to attend what promises to be an exciting and enjoyable event and that you will continue to support the Arts.
Yours sincerely,
