creative engagemet

It is an arts-in-education programme.  This entails an artist or artists coming into the school to work with the students. A creative engagement happens when a local artist or  arts  group comes into the school and imparts their skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to the students.  This partnership has mutual benefits to both artist and school. Creative Engagement programme encompasses the arts in its broadest manifestation, from the visual arts to music, from theatre to dance and all the arts in between.

The Creative Engagement programme strives to encourage creativity, initiative and expression in our students and to complement curricular learning in the arts , heritage and culture.  NAPD envisions an education system energised through the arts and where creativity is a core activity in the post primary curriculum.   The NAPD Arts Culture and Heritage committee celebrates its twenty fourth anniversary this year 2023.  The Arts Culture and Heritage committee has been  administering the Creative Engagement programme in schools since 2005.
