Arts Beat Carnival
Arts beat carnival (ABC) was held from 9th – 14th July 2018. ABC aimed to increase our students’ exposure to different arts forms such as Visual and Performing Arts. It also created a platform for students to showcase their talents in the aesthetic aspect. The objectives are in line with the school’s continuous effort to provide a holistic development for our students, so as to prepare them to be future-ready. Below is a series of activities that were carried out during the ABC:
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.
The 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.
Project Greenway is a competition showcasing our students’ talent in designing and playing their part in saving the environment. Students (P5 & 6) take part by designing, making and cat-walking their fashion pieces.
