Learning for Life Programme (LLP)

– Enhancing Expression, Creativity and Aesthetics Appreciation (ECAA) through the ARTS

“Arts Education develops students’ character and values, cultivates positive attitudes and self-expression, and strengths essential soft skills which are important 21st Century Competencies (21CC) to help students thrive in the fast-changing world and nurture them to be socially responsible citizens who contribute meaningfully to society.”

 

ECAA through the ARTS aims to

  • Nurture and develop in students an appreciation for the arts and a keen sense of aesthetics
  • Expose students to a variety of arts forms progressively, as well as to provide an in-depth experience in the learning of the arts as they advance
  • Promote the Arts in our school and the wider community
  • Encourage values and character development through aesthetics appreciation; Stretch the potential of talented students by providing students opportunities to hone their talents and skills through partnerships with external organisations/ pathfinders
