AT New Hanover Prep, the art of musical theatre is used as a vehicle to develop healthy, confident, well-rounded children who have a sense of value in the world.
It provides a unique educational experience that nourishes the body, mind and spirit and creates an environment for children to interact, work together and learn from each other.

This week the Grade 6 and Grade 7 children were involved in a theatre performance of “Robin Hood and the New Hanover Hoodies” followed by the Grade 3 pupils who became the “First Kids in Space”.

More than just participating in theatre performances, children came away with the ability to integrate their experiences with musical theatre in all other areas of their life with expanded co-operation skills, higher self-esteem, enhanced reading skills, increased co-ordination of left-brain and right-brain activity, evidenced in rhythm, musicality, and movement as well as a respect and tolerance for each other's differences.

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
