Exposure to various art forms:

P5 & P6 Aesthetics Camp held on 16 January 2020 had the Primary 5s dabbling with Chinese Brush Painting and learning how to Beatbox, and the Primary 6s exploring Mosaic Collage and creating timeless music with the Angklung. The Aesthetics Camp was planned with the theme ‘Escapade’ in mind, taking students on an adventure in a fun and meaningful way, giving them the hands-on experience in art forms that they have not been exposed to in their formal art and music curriculum.

Nurturing confident individuals through performance opportunities:
Performance by students for students – Talentime @ Damai – was held during all three recesses on 9 March 2020 to allow our aspiring artistes to showcase their talents. Some gave solo performances, some performed in groups. They sang, danced, played music instruments, beatboxed, performed magic show, etc. Students who were the audience showed their appreciation for their schoolmates with rousing applause and cheers.
