Aesthetics

Learning Outcomes

In Angsana Primary School, we believe in the importance of a holistic education and the need for the balance in academic and non-academic areas.

Through our programmes, we aim to:

  • To create a vibrant, engaging and holistic environment that nurtures the artistic and creative potential of the pupils
  • To develop confidence, resilience and a spirit of innovation in pupils

 

Pedagogical Approaches

Through the 4E framework, the Aesthetics plan is carefully crafted at each level to provide a diverse arts experience for all students.

  • Exposure

Through the 6 years Aesthetics programme, pupils will progressively be introduced to appreciate different genres of visual and performing arts. They will be given opportunities to learn and acquire the knowledge and skills in both visual and performing arts.

  • Expression

Pupils will be given opportunities to express their thoughts and feelings through the Arts and promote their love through Music performances and Art fringe activities conducted during recesses, and school events.

  • Experience

Learning Journeys and Arts assembly programmes aims to bring pupils beyond the classroom to immerse in an arts environment that will deepen and enhance their learning in the arts.

  • Excel

The school is committed to develop aspiring talents to showcase and promote their love for the arts.

- Participating in school-based and national competitions
