Art, craft and design are encouraged at New Horizon and we engage our students in the highest forms of human creativity. Our programme inspires our students and equips them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Design techniques, and the biography and works of great artists and craft makers are an integral part of their sessions. They also learn how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of every nation.
Computing education offered at New Horizon equips students to use computational thinking and creativity. Since computing has deep links with mathematics, science and design and technology, it provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. Students are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. School graduates become problem solvers and digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world. Also, they become familiar and use the applications to create their presentations and videos.
Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. New Horizon School provides a high-quality music education which inspires students to develop a love of music and to explore their talent as musicians. Through music and song, their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement develops further. Students perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians. They are given the opportunity during their sessions to understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the interrelated dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
We emphasize the relation between learning and well-being, and therefore take special interest in inspiring all students to engage and participate in competitive sport and physical training including yoga practice. New Horizon provides opportunities for students to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to lead healthy and active lives enhances character building and help to embed values such as respect and team-work.
