Assembly Programmes and Post-Exam Activities

Through assembly programmes and post-exam activities, students can get exposure to a wide variety of art forms – in visual arts, music, dance and theatre. Students also get a chance to participate in these art forms and learn from practitioners.

In the past 2 years, the school had the honour of having renowned local arts groups put up programmes for the school. One such group was singer-songwriter duo Jack and Rai who coincidentally put up their NAC-endorsed programme for the first time in our school. Another group that came was the Brass Quintet from the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. Students also had a hand at playing a home-made brass instrument!

In 2017, the Secondary One students made a visit to Esplanade – Theatres On The Bay during the year-end Post-Exam Activities. They saw the various performance and visual arts spaces and learnt how each space was optimally designed and built.
