The Sixth Korea School Arts Education Festival, where 4,000 students from 150 elementary, middle and high schools across the country are participating, has opened in Songdo, Incheon.
At this three-day festival hosted by the Ministry of Education, students will boast their skills they have been honing, including orchestra, musical and theater.
Since 2011, the Ministry of Education has been supporting various arts education programs for schools and students suffering from issues like school violence.
<Lee Young / Vice Minister of Education> “I hope that the next three days will be an opportunity for students from all over the country to nurture their dreams, show off their talents, and build friendships.”
Participating students are also filled with great anticipation.
<Sohn Rebekah / 3rd Grade at Jochiwon Girls’ Middle School> “When our friends went out to eat "tteokbokki" and play in a karaoke after school, we got together in the music room and worked really hard. We are nervous, but we will do well.”
At the festival, in addition to the performances in each field, the Education Office is running experiential booths for arts clubs.
