1. OUR LEARNING FOR LIFE PROGRAMME (LLP)
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 for Excellence” approach encourages lifelong learning in the pupils and provides 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 are inculcated in the students as they undergo the different experiences.
2. OUR ENVIRONMENTAL PROJECTS AND COMPETITIONS
Using the Appreciative Inquiry approach, the Art programmes are reviewed and recalibrated to ensure that it is interdisciplinary, building on pupil’s character and infusing ICT especially with the affordances of technology in this present world. Studio habits of mind is used as a basic tenet for character building as the Art programmes go through the reaffirmation stage. As our pupils engage and persist in art making, the values of endurance and diligence are inculcated further into them. Whilst understanding the community and envisioning the future, the spirit of citizenship among our pupils is further enhanced.
Our P5 Signature Art Programme – Embracing Creativity and Enhancing Character Building through Origami
Through the process of exploration and experimentation, character
building is strengthened. As our pupils engage in self-reliance and self-
expression, they also pick up their courage to be risk takers as they try new
folding techniques and assemblage methods.

Our End of the Year Art Exhibition
As much as we wanted our pupils to appreciate the arts, we also wanted
our pupils to feel that their artworks are appreciated and valued for.
As proposed by the educational perspective under the Ethical Leadership, our goal is to serve the best interest of our pupils. With this belief in mind, an Art exhibition is seen as an effective platform to show our sense of gratitude and appreciation for our pupils’ effort, determination and perseverance as they see through their art pieces.

We collaborated with Orchid Park Secondary School for the Art exhibition for the past two years.
Apart from pupils’ artworks, art pieces by the School leaders and teachers are also exhibited.
