Aesthetics Opportunities for Learning

Learning Journey – An experience at a Drama/Musical 
In collaboration with the English department, All P2 and P3 students will attend a play/musical. Students learn to practice their school values and learn about theatre etiquette. At the end of the learning journey, students return back to class to write about their experiences in their journals.  

In-house Competitions 
aesthetics 6.pngThe school organises these 2 key Art competitions every year. They are the “Navalite Compass & Bookmark Competition” and “Project Greenway”. 

Our students get to design our annual Navalite Compass and as a school decide on the design for the following year. Through this, we allow students to have greater ownership in the compass they bring every day.
