Music and Drama

Ms. Barleta Neno - HOD

The club was formed in 2013 and since then the club has grown tremendously. It has represented the school at various levels, from the Sub-County to the national level. We have been participating in various categories like folk music and dances, elocutions, instrumentals and set music during music festivals, and on the other hand, dramatized solo and choral verses, spoken word, comedy, play, modern dance and film during drama festivals.

We have a team that is dedicated and selfless. We go miles to nurture the young talents presented to us. This year (2023) we have participated in drama festivals and we are proceeding to the national level and focusing on going even beyond. Currently, we are the Sub-county, county and regional champions and among the best teams proceeding to the national levels.

Under the leadership of our able producer and Senior Principal, the one and only Mr. Joseph Were, we have received full support right from production of the different genres to being available whenever needed and I believe we will do better than in the previous years.

We are striving regardless not only to nurture talents but also to fly The Onjiko flag higher.

 

TALANTA NA SISI

The club was formed and has been active since 2020. Our vision is to entertain, educate and nurture talents. We always organize an annual event dubbed “Talents Day” where students showcase various items under the mentorship of various teachers. It is through the club that we crown ‘Mr Onjiko’.

This annual event has always been successful because of the support we have received from the Onjiko internal community through the support of our able Senior Principal, Mr. Joseph Were. We always take care of artists, rappers, poets, dancers, actors, and models among others.

Through the club, we have successfully managed to link our students to various stakeholders, firms and individuals who continue to nurture them even after exiting the school. As our motto articulates, ‘Talanta ni Sisi’ we aspire to foster talents so that our scholars can also strive in this competitive world

There are very few activities that utilize the entire brain, and music is one of them. Music is all around us. It is the soundtrack of our lives. Music connects us through people and places in our ever-changing world. It is creative, collaborative and celebratory and challenging. In Onjiko, music brings communities together through the shared endeavor of whole-school singing,  ensemble playing, experimenting with the creative process and, through the love of listening to friends and fellow pupils, performing.

A high-quality music education should engage and inspire students to develop a love of music and their talents as musicians and increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As students progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in their musical canon.

The aim of music teaching in Onjiko High School, through the KCSE curriculum, is to ensure that all students perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of great composers and musicians.

Learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn music instruments, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence.

Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
