PE, Art & Music
The PE, Art & Music Committee seeks to teach Music and Art skills and appreciation through Expressing, Enjoying, Creating and being Critical thinkers. This is done through a variety of engaging and enriching Music and Art programmes and activities.
(i) PHE Syllabus
P1 to P4 pupils learn skills in the domains of Athletics, Dance, Games & Sports, Gymnastics, Physical Health Education and Outdoor Education.
(ii) Programme for Active Learning (PAL)
P1 to P2 pupils participate in a whole year programme exploring, experiencing and expressing themselves in the domains of Outdoor Education, Performance Arts, Sports & Games and Visual Arts.
(iii) Saints Games Day
P1 to P6 pupils showcase skills learnt from PHE Syllabus in a sporting event designed to achieve team excellence.
(iv) P3 SwimSafer Programme / P3 Swimming Carnival
P3 pupils participate in a learn-to-swim programme ending with a swimming carnival to showcase the skills they have learnt.
(v) Co-Curricular Activities (CCA)
P3 to P6 pupils participate in CCA to develop their talent and interest, showcase character and contribute their efforts to achieve team goals.
The new Art curriculum seeks to cultivate a spirit of innovation and experimentation and teaches pupils to share their ideas, thoughts and feelings through their art work with the aim of developing self-confidence and celebrating achievements. In the process, pupils also develop appreciation for the visual art and become visually literate in their ability to observe, understand and make meaning of what they see. Through in house and external art competitions, pupils are given the opportunity to express themselves and feel excited about the art making process with the assistance of skilled external art vendors in partnership with our own art teachers.
For music, the focus is on the teaching and learning of basic theory, music appreciation and music making. All pupils are able to play the recorder and the guitar with some proficiency by the time they reach the Primary Six level. This is the kind of confidence we instill in our boys - the ability to express themselves musically through one or more forms of expressions.
Parents can help us in the following areas
(i) Encourage the love for outdoor activities
Outdoor activities help children to experience and enjoy the environment. Simple activities such as walks can help to stimulate their senses, improve metabolism and reduce the risk of myopia.
(ii) Encourage the love for team play
Playing with friends and neighbours at the playground or sports facilities can help to develop teamwork and leadership.
(iii) Volunteer for Programme for Active Learning (PAL)
Involve yourself in PAL and experience the fun pupils enjoy every Friday. (iii) Volunteer for Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) Involve yourself in CCA
(iv) Encourage boys to appreciate music and art
Encourage boys in the Music and Art lessons through being supportive and talking to them about expressing and appreciating Art and Music in their various forms.
