呂中藝術教育理念 Our beliefs

呂中認為藝術是一切與心靈有關的創作、欣賞及人生態度,既與天份有關,亦十分需要後天的培養;所以我們深信藝術教育可以發展學生的創造力、思維能力及審美能力,並培養出具文化氣質和修養的青年,以承傳及發展人類的文明。呂中的藝術教育是通過課程設計及各種活動以培養學生的藝術修養及氣質,透過跨科活動,如專題研習、戲曲匯演及藝術創作(如布偶、機械人),提供機會予學生培養多元藝術興趣,發展其創造力及高階思維。我們更與香港八和會館合作,為初中學生開辦粵劇藝術課程,成為首間將粵劇藝術引入正規課程的學校。此外,我們開辦超過60班樂器班,建立具規模的中西樂團,大力推動中、英語話劇和音樂劇,並於2012及2013連續兩年獲香港藝術發展局頒發藝術教育獎。

To us, art is anything created to attend to the well-being of the soul, while also developing aesthetic sensibilities and cultivating artistic expression. It has to do with both nature and nurture. We have a strong conviction that arts education develops creative, critical and exploratory thinking and aesthetic abilities. We aim to educate our students to become not only academically competent, but to also be cultured youths. Arts education in LYC is implemented through incorporating it into the curriculum and conducting relevant activities. Collaborating with Bar Wo (the Chinese Artists Association of Hong Kong), a well-established professional organization for Cantonese Opera performers, we have been offering Cantonese Opera programmes to junior forms, making LYC the very first school to introduce this art form into the regular curriculum. In addition, we provide opportunities for students to participate in other arts activities across different key learning areas such as project learning, opera performances, marionette shows and robot design. Our musical instrument classes, which are over 60 in number, strive to provide more arts enrichment for our students. Last but not least, Chinese and English dramas, as well as musicals are also core elements in our overall arts outlook.  With our incessant efforts in fostering life-long interest in the arts among our students, we succeeded in winning the Award for Arts Education in 2012 and 2013 presented by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, which is recognition of LYC’s distinguished achievement in promoting arts education in Hong Kong.
