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 to learn to play a musical instrument such as guzheng or ukulele; learn different dance styles such as hip hop and jazz, go on excursions to museums and watch local and international productions. 

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 Artiste Within’.

Here is what our JYians have to say about our Learning for Life Programme:

‘I had learnt to be confident when I dance because I must show the energy in my performance. Most importantly I must be “thick skinned” and not to fear to make mistakes in front of a crowd.’

- Ash Yow Chuan Feng, 2017 1E1

‘I really like the chorus ‘Whoop Whoop”. Although the dance is challenging but I had overcome the difficulties. I could dance now.’ 

-  Sabrina Batrisyia Binte Azman, 2017 1T1

‘I enjoyed the learning journey to Esplanade. It helps to boost my self-esteem as it made me be aware that even men could take part in the dance performance and not to be shy about it.’

- Tan Zhan Peng, Andrew, 2017 2E2

‘The learning journey to the dance performance at Esplanade has help to develop my sense of responsibility as I am now aware how to behave in such cultured venues.’ 
-  Chee Le Xuan, 2017 2E2


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.
