Key Department Programmes
Enrichment Programme on Mixed Media Arts
Mixed media refers to a work of visual art that combines various traditionally distinct visual art media. Many interesting effects can be achieved by using mixed media. Often, recycled objects are used in conjunction with traditional art mediums. Students source for recycled and reusable items that can be used for their art pieces. At the end of the programme, students apply the knowledge and skill of using different elements of traditional art mediums with recycled materials.

Design & Technology (D&T) Unit
In D&T, students learn mainly through design-and-make projects guided by a design process. The design process entails identifying design needs from real-world experiences, generating and developing ideas, and realising the design solution; with research carried out when necessary. In doing so, students acquire related knowledge and develop skills to turn ideas into reality and values like mindfulness, empathy, and sensitivity in the areas of social, culture and environment.
Special Programmes in D&T
Applied Learning Programme (Design Thinking)
The D&T Unit supports the school’s ALP programme by providing all the lower secondary students with the Design Thinking skills needed in the empathising, defining, ideating, prototyping and testing of their problem identification and solution making. Students in the programme will also get the opportunity to actualize their proposed ideas. They also applied these skills learned in various national level competitions and make presentations to VIPs during the 2018 Tech Saturday (Upsized) organised by the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA).
