Artsfest raises the curtain on 800 students in the performing arts

Artsfest raises the curtain on 800 students in the performing arts

Schools in the West Region 7 Family of Schools, encompassing the neighbourhoods of The Junction, Bloor West Village, Roncesvalles, Bloordale Village, and Queen West, had an opportunity to build community through artistic expression in a one of a kind performance called Artsfest.  Some 800 students from kindergarten to grade 12 gathered at Perth Avenue PS in the heart of Toronto over two days to perform dance, drama, music and poetry.  

The gathering was unique in that students aren’t often privy to the creative efforts of those outside their own school.  Artsfest Director and Perth PS teacher Arwyn Carpenter said that  to practice and persevere and then finally perform for an invited audience builds student confidence and self-esteem.  "For kindergarten students to perform for secondary students, and vice versa, is quite exciting and gives each a real boost.”  

Carpenter believes that schools are building the foundation of a caring, expressive society. “This kind of event helps reinforce that we are connected to a larger community,” she added.
