Learning for Life Programme


 

At Juying Secondary School, our Learning for Life Programme – iACE@Juying  (I Appreciate, I Create, I Exhibit my talents at Juying) seeks to plant the seed of aesthetics appreciation in all our JYians; develop their artistic abilities in the different fields of performing arts and provide them with opportunities to create and exhibit their artistic talents.   

 Under our holistic Learning for Life Programme, JYians get a choice of learning the musical instrument guzheng or learning the hip hop dance. All our JYians are also given the opportunity to learn to play the musical instrument ukulele.  

 With the support of the National Arts Council’s Artist-In-School-Scheme this year, we have engaged established artists such as Mr Eddie Marzuki to teach ukulele. Mr Eddie Marzuki had produced and arranged music for famous singers such as Andy Lau and Aaron Kwok in the past. Another notable artist the school engaged is Mr Alif Aircho. Mr Alif Aircho was recently invited by MediaCorp Suria to be one of the judges for Dansa Mania 2019.  He teaches hip hop to our lower secondary JYians.  

In addition, with the generous support by Esplanade who had continuously sponsored our students to multiple shows, we have managed to send our Secondary 2 cohort to attend great forum theatres such as “The Lesson”, “The Pigeoning” and “The Artist”, Secondary 3 cohort to attend the Opera “Bizet Carmen” as well as “The Chinese Ghost Seller” this year.  

 The school embarked on a Sand Arts collaboration with XingNan Primary School this year to inspire interested students to innovate and be creative in this rare and beautiful art form. Over the course of the workshop, our JYians built up their confidence and experienced the joy of learning, as they forged new friendships with one another.  

It is our firm belief that every child is an artist within. Hence, it is our mission to nurture every JYian to bring out the artist in them and achieve our vision of ‘Every JYian an Artist’.     Here is what our JYians have to say about what they have picked up through our Learning for Life Programme:

Sec 1 National Gallery LJ

“The National Art Gallery walk has taught me not to give up easily as the artist took years of patience to be successful” – 1A2 Yu Liang  

Sec 2 GZ/Hiphop dance

“I had a tough time trying to learn and adapt to this new instrument. However, all the hard work was worthwhile when I heard myself playing the Guzheng melodiously.” – 2E2 Jolena Goh  

Sand Arts Workshop

“The instructors made the drawing execution look so easy but I just could not mimic it. It was really discouraging to draw and re-draw things that do not look the same as what the instructors did. However, I did not give up, and thankfully, our instructors did not too! I believe that it just takes time and hard work to pick up the skills to draw sand arts beautifully. I finally understood that if I work hard, I can achieve.” – 1E1 Ellycia

 

Overview


The school’s existing aesthetics development programme has been affirmed and recognised by National Arts Council through the award of the National Arts Education GLOW Award 2015 and 2013, a development made since 2011 when the school was awarded the National Arts Education Sparks Award.

The 2015 GLOW Award in National Arts Education was achieved for demonstrating holistic planning and processes in arts education.
