Junior Preparatory School


Music is exciting. It crosses borders, turns frowns into smiles and it is a language everyone speaks and understands! Schools that fail to encourage the development of this expressive art, deny their pupils access to a stunning part of their culture. WHPS Junior Preparatory Music is alive and well.

At WHPS we have a proud Music Tradition which in addition to setting us apart from many other schools, gives all boys the opportunity to be exposed to a variety of instruments. They learn to be productive and creative, and at the same time also have a lot of fun.

School music programmes are especially relevant to the development of a holistic education. They promote self-expression, responsibility and creativity. They develop self-discipline and thinking skills such as problem solving, evaluation and analysis. Boys involved in music at WHPS leave the class with a positive experience and as a result when boys are exposed to music, they acquire a taste for the things in life that will feed their souls. The boys at WHPS are giving many opportunities to perform and enhance their self-confidence.
