Music. Art. Dance. Drama.


The Arts is integral to the holistic development of our students. It contributes to their development of an understanding of the Moral, Emotional, Social, Cognitive, Aesthetic and Physical (MESCAP) dimensions of human experience.

The role of arts education is central in developing in our students a lively curiosity and an inquisitive mind. This is essential as it promotes inventive thinking and an innovative orientation in what they do.

Arts education is also the gateway to our students’ sense of aesthetics, which is the basis of how they perceive the world at large and all that is around them. Such a perspective helps them make meaning of their lives, culture and identity.


Curricular Goal


Our students are enthusiastic participants and appreciative audience of the Arts.

Arts Galore

Arts Galore is a week-long programme where students are invited to visit music and art booths during recess. The students have fun playing music and art games, making origami, dancing to bhangra music and playing parts of ‘Let it Go’ from the cartoon, Frozen, on the xylophone.

Excursions


We believe that it is important to engage students in the arts beyond the confines of the school walls, which is why our students are given the opportunity to attend an arts-related learning journey every year.

In April, our P2 students visit the Philatelic Museum. During the visit, they designed their very own stamp. Upon their return, they transferred their design onto clay and made it into a fridge magnet which was presented to their parents during the Parent-Teacher Conference.

In July, selected students will be attending the Singapore Youth Festival Celebrations. At the event, they will be immersed in an afternoon of art activities and music & dance performances jointly put up by various schools in Singapore.


Arts CCAs


In 2014, we started our very first Performing Arts CCA – Contemporary Dance and, in 2015, we started Choir and Art Club. These add into our pool of Arts CCAs to cater to our students’ varied interests and talents.

Our Dancers attained the Certificate of Accomplishment for Contemporary Dance in 2016.

Morning Singing


Students at Punggol View Primary love to sing. We believe that the voice is our natural instrument, and we should use it often to make music. Every term, the students learn at least two new songs during Morning Singing to add to their repertoire.

By the end of the year, students would have sung ‘Love in Any Language’, ‘Singapura’, ‘Home, ‘He Xin Nian’, ‘Gong Xi Gong Xi’, Gelang Sipaku Gelang / Di Tanjung Katong / Chan Mali Chan Medley’, just to name a few.

With the programmes in place, we hope to provide our students with the foundational all-rounded arts experience they deserve, so that they can be equipped to participate in and appreciate the arts beyond their school life.
