Hayley - started this petition to Minister of Education

 The less money going towards drama, music and art means the less opportunity and less ways to express yourself. Yes, I won’t lie that equipment like instruments and art supplies can cost a lot but honestly i think it’s worth it. The ARTS should be recognised more, just like sport. Studies have shown that they all have benefits to them like music helps with depression, it eases pain and lowers your stress. Art relieves stress, allows creativity and can boost your self-esteem. Drama helps younger kids emotionally, socially and it allows you to be physical in a non sporting way. We could change this, we could make schooling easier and better when kids have the right mind set. Most schools ART programs pay for themselves and that’s not fair. If we can relieve stress and allow them to be creative then possibly that could change the whole impact on what kids think on school and they might want to learn once their self confidence rises.
