Our Mission

Nurturing Each Child To Be Creative, Critical And Confident Learners; And To Prepare Them To Become Enterprising Individuals Who Appreciate Arts.

Our Signature Programmes

  Aesthetics Department
Programme NameDetails
Guitar ProgrammeAll lower secondary students will be able to play the guitar fluently. Pop songs are introduced to add more interest and fun to the whole music-making process.  Our students will be exposed to the fundamentals of guitar playing and also be provided with opportunities to appreciate the different types of art forms. The guitar programme will allow them to pursue creative self-expression and they will surely enjoy the learning experience through individual playing and ensemble playing.
Print-Making Programme

3X-Print project (eXplore, eXperiment & eXpress) aims to inculcate in our students an attitude of inquiry through the exposure of various printmaking techniques. This programme will be a platform for our students to explore different possibilities in one's art making processes. The programme aims to encourage our students to take risks and innovate while expressing themselves artistically.

Sec 1 - "From Farm to Plate" Signature Programme
(Food and Consumer Education Unit)

A programme uniquely tailored to enrich and raise awareness among our students on a range of local produce. We aim to develop our students to be discerning consumers who promote food sustainablility through our FCE curriculum and a fieldtrip. To enhance parental involvement, we also organise a culinary session "Our Date with Dad" for our Dads to join their children in cooking. They share cooking tips and present their family dishes to share with all. This programme would surely enrich our students' FCE learning, expose them to our local produce while enjoying the bonding experience with their families. 

Sec 2 - Design For A Cause Series 

This programme is designed to equip our students with design thinking skills to empathise the critical needs of our target groups. Our students are taught to define the groups' situations accurately and ideate for solutions to address their needs. Their ideas are conceptualised through mock-ups and model-making through 3-D printing via SolidWork software. The students' projects are showcased during Innovation Day.

Sec 3 - Advanced SolidWork and "Sketching" Clinic

This programme is aimed to strengthen our students' ICT skills through the use of SolidWork to design and fabricate their prototypes' parts. This ignites innovative sparks of our students.  It also provides platforms where their prototypes can be tested for marketability. This programme is part of our talent development programme to stretch our higher ability students.

Our Belief

Through the Art and Craft & Technology (A.C.T) programmes, our students are more aware of the values and roles of the Arts in society to appreciate the deeper forms of beauty in life and develop awareness of design appreciation and design-thinking.

We aim to provide:
1) breadth of learning through broad-based curriculum and diverse arts experiences; and
2) depth of learning through deepening understanding and appreciation of specific arts forms.
