STEAM: Science and Arts
Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics play a crucial part in every student´s learning journey. At Agora Sant Cugat International School, we embed creativity in all activities related to these subjects, helping students learn how to make connections, how to organise their ideas, how to be creative, how to make decisions and how to work together across different disciplines.
Artists and scientists share the same skills and abilities, which is why in Agora Sant Cugat International School we give a leading role to all the subject areas that comprise them. For this reason, we work with LEGO® Education SPIKE ™ Prime to provide our students with the best learning skills in programming and robotics. Thanks to the software and activities adapted to the needs of our students and the specific training of our teachers, they are able to learn the tools with which they need to advance in the exciting and intuitive world of different programming languages.
Music and Expressive Arts are key to the integral development of children and provide enormous cognitive and personal benefits as well as enhancing their communication skills. An education in music promotes the development and improvement of special talents, alongside the values of hard work, improvement, sensitivity, organisation and teamwork. Music plays a leading role in Agora Sant Cugat International School with our affiliation with the Barcelona Liceu Conservatory and our Josep Carreras Auditorium that has the capacity for an audience of 360 and ideal for carrying out musical activities, conferences, theatrical productions and debates.
Our Music Project aims to provide an active experience of music. In addition to the official and compulsory curriculum, all our students learn to play at least one musical instrument (violin, viola, cello, flute or clarinet) and develop their vocal skills up to Primary 6 with the chance to perform in the different concerts that are scheduled each year. Students also have the opportunity to belong to the School Orchestra, the School Band or the School Youth Choir. Within the curriculum, students have two Music sessions per week and from Primary 1 play a stringed instrument with the option of changing to a wind instrument from Primary 3.
In Debate, communication skills in public speaking and discussion in Spanish and English are encouraged and developed so that students can become confident, organised and respectful conversationalists.
