Learning for Life Programme
In Juying Secondary School, our Learning for Life Programme (LLP) is in Aesthetics. In the Aesthetics Department, our vision is ‘Every JYian An Artist Within’. We believe that at the heart of Every JYian is an Artist, and our Total Arts Curriculum is designed to nurture and polish that Artist within all our students. It takes the 5Es approach to ‘Engage, Excite, Explore, Enrich and Empower’ all students.
The department has a robust and tiered structure – Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 2+ that engages students at multiple levels to allow a broad-based Arts education for all students at Tier 1, a more targeted and deeper Arts training for interested students at Tier 2 and enhanced exposure for selected students who have the talent and passion to pursue the Arts further at Tier 2+.
In line with our mission of ‘Developing Creative, Appreciative and Passionate Learners through Aesthetics’, through the 4-5 years of Arts education in Juying Secondary school, we strive to cultivate the essential learning dispositions in our JYians – to become creative, appreciative and passionate learners through the inculcation of the Arts.
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
