Currently, Grades 5 and 6 students are exploring a unit of inquiry with the transdisciplinary theme of "How We Express Ourselves". In this very interesting unit, they have a lot of opportunities to explore different art forms and how people choose their own unique ways to express ideas, feelings, beliefs, culture and values. As one of the learning explorations, they attended a session with Kak Khansa (Grade 11), Kak Kesya (Grade 12), Kak Galang (Grade 12) and Kak Dewa (Grade 12) who choose craft-making, fashion, movie-making and music as their means of expression.

They shared their passion with the fifth and sixth graders through slide shows of pictures, explanation and videos. They explained the creative process involved in creating artworks, where their inspiration come from and how they use arts to contribute to the society. They highlighted the importance of having courage to express ourselves and keep on trying. Through responding to and creating artworks, we develop understanding of ourselves and the world around us. We also learn to interpret and appreciate different perspectives.

It was a very rewarding session for Grades 5 and 6 and we are very grateful to have the opportunity to learn from Kak Khansa, Kak Kesya, Kak Galang and Kak Dewa. We are ready to explore more and prepare our mini-exhibition and PYP exhibition. Thank you for the insights, Kak Khansa, Kak Kesya, Kak Galang and Kak Dewa! We wish you success and keep inspiring people!
