Recently, 25 of our Primary 4 and Primary 5 students took part in the SAFRA Lil’ Stars art competition organised by SAFRA Toa Payoh. The theme was, “Superhero” whereby the young artists would have to create their own superhero and show how their superhero help protect Singapore from Covid-19.

Use Of Sketchbooks

Starting 2016, all pupils are expected to use a sketchbook as part of their art experience. The sketchbooks serve as a platform for pupils to record information, generate ideas, explore different techniques and reflect.


The Music Department aims to help pupils achieve a personal level of understanding, appreciation and passion for music. Every pupil will develop a background in music and musicianship that prepares them for individual and ensemble playing in school.

We provide curricular and enrichment opportunities for our pupils to learn at least three musical instruments, enhancing their musical experience.

Programme includes:

  • Guitar Digital Music
  • Handchimes
  • Recorder
  • Cajon

  • Music from Different Cultures and Folk-songs
