Living in the digital age, computing is an essential part of a well-rounded academic education. The subject offers excellent opportunities for true creativity and innovativeness. From understanding current trends in computing, programming, calculating in binary and creating 3D Models. Computing draws upon and develops a range of logical, creative, mathematical and scientific skills needed for everyday life.
The use of technology is based on our ‘Bring your own Device’ programme, and all of our classrooms are equipped with either an interactive whiteboard or a large LCD television. We have full Wifi coverage and students make good use of a range of educational software. Innovation is an essential part of the way in which the curriculum is delivered.
The Performing Arts program at GEMS Metropole goes well beyond classroom drama and music. Whether it be on stage acting, singing or dancing in one of the many plays or musicals; backstage learning the art of stage make-up, costume design, set design, lighting or sound; taking on the role of student Director; there are opportunities for every area of theatrical interest.
