Expressive Arts After School Activities

I wish to inform you of an exciting, new, after-school Arts Programme which has started in Pinkie St Peter’s Primary School in partnership with East Lothian Council Arts Service. All pupils are encouraged to attend a weekly programme of arts activities run by specialist tutors, enabling skills development in the following areas, music, dance and drama.

Studies have shown that regular participation in organised arts activity is linked to raise educational attainment and improved health and wellbeing in children. Every pupil at the school has been allocated a place on the programme. Pupils are allocated one day and one activity by the school for the 2018 autumn term. Each new term, pupils will change activity so that they are able to experience all three art forms over the course of the academic year.

All activities are offered free of charge.

We currently still have spaces available in the sessions listed below. If you have not already signed up to one of the activities and would like to attend please collect a form from Nurture Room 2.
