Approach

The school adopts a pyramid or ATP(All-Talent-Passion) approach in promoting Arts. By adopting the pyramid approach, the school aims to provide experience for all, identify and develop talents, and equip and inspire pupils to continue to pursue their passion and develop their talents beyond their primary education.

Approach 1 : Experience for All

The experience for All is part of the school’s effort in the provision of holistic and broad education to help every pupil explore and discover their talent.  It is the first step towards the creation of different pathways to success. At this broad base level, all pupils learn dance, music and art through different modular programmes.

During the whole-level lessons, which are carried out during curriculum time, pupils learn both the skills and the history of the different dances and how they have evolved. They also learn not only to appreciate their own culture but also other cultures, and gain a better understanding of them.
