Opportunities for pupils to demonstrate, appreciate and contribute to the arts scene.


Providing pupils with various Art forms through pervasive Art and Music curriculum.

Art Curriculum

Pupils are given the opportunity to explore and experiment with different forms and dimensions of Art. Applying hands-on activities allow pupils to showcase their creativity and innovative thinking in the learning of Art. To inculcate creative and innovative thinking, pupils are engaged in the appreciation of local and international Art. 


Lessons comprise the teaching of a variety of songs, ranging from the traditional to the contemporary, the use of varied percussion instruments, the learning of the recorder from P3 to P6, hands-on activities through paired and group work and preparation for in-house performances. Lessons are livened up with the use of e-books, sound and video clips and suitable movies to ensure that effective, interactive and fun learning takes place. 

Viva De Symphonie through Concert Band – Championing Values: Living, growing and learning with music

Viva De Symphonie is the 6-year progressive programme provides opportunities for all pupils to develop an appreciation of music and enrich their lives through music. Young talents are systematically identified in the area of music and they were developed through the school’s music CCA groups. These talents are actively involved as participants and contributors to the music scene in the school and beyond.

The “Music for all and Music or excellence” approach encouraged lifelong learning in the pupils and provided them with a supportive environment for enjoyable participation in a variety of local and international musical activities, competitions and invitational performances. 

21st CC and values such as teamwork, resilience, responsibility, sense of purpose and creativity were inculcated in the students as they went through the different experiences.
