Perceived as an instructional programme of great importance in our children’s holistic education package, much effort is placed in the design and implementation of both the Visual Arts and Music curriculum. While aligning ourselves with the MOE syllabuses in Art and Music, we also further benchmark against other more advanced Arts Education Institutions in Singapore, extending our curriculum to explicitly teach Creative and Inventive Thinking and Artistic Thinking, both of which, salient skills for the 21st cc learner.
Our demonstration of our typical Drama, Music, and Visual Arts classes were highly commended upon by the International Delegates of the 9th Asia-Pacific Symposium on Music Education Research / Arts Education Conference 2013 who recently visited on 19 Jul, 2013.
The Music team strives to nurture the pupils’ musicality to achieve the following learning outcomes:
- Sing and play melodic and rhythmic instruments individually and in groups
- Create and improvise music
- Describe and evaluate music through listening
- Develop understanding of music elements/concepts
Discern and understand music from various cultures and of various genres
In line with the school’s Aesthetics vision, Every pupil an artist, the Visual Art team aims to develop in each pupil a love for the visual arts and as an artist, and partake in the making and appreciating of visual art forms.
The Aesthetics Department aims to inspire pupils to aspire towards artistic thinking, cultivate skills in art making so as to express their artistic disposition in the visual art forms. Every pupil will be well versed in the principle of design and will possess a wide range of art making skills with reasonable depth in the different disciplines.
To realise the above, 3 approaches has been identified:
- Educate pupils in developing ideas through creative processes
- Transfer of appropriate art making skills to represent pupils’ artistic ideas
- Provide platforms for the sharing of artworks
Numerous platforms will be provided for pupils to share and showcase their artworks both in school and public areas. This will allow pupils to validate their artistic thinking and art making skills.
Our Dance Curriculum unfolds through the Dance enrichments and PAL programmes.
