Special Events and Educational Activities:

Creativity Afternoon

Once a year we have a Creative Afternoon where anyone from Gr. 1 to Gr. 12 can join the Art teacher to learn a new craft or art skill, i.e. Mosaic or Modge Podge and we make something like a photo frame or a tray.  It is an afternoon full of fun, joy and laughter.

Talent Evening – Art Exhibition

Here at Xanadu Private School we are very proud of our learners and so we love to show off with their work.  Once a year, at the talent evening, the Art teacher exhibits the learners art work which they have created throughout the year. The whole family is invited to come and witness the great talent we have in our school.
