PROLIFERATION OF THE ARTS
As the pupils’ forte in the visual and the performing arts became increasingly apparent, it was decided that a grand arts event be held every three years to showcase pupils’ talents. ARTS PANACHE I on the theme’ Love and Peace’ was held on 3 rd April 2004 at the Nanyang Auditorium and ARTS PANACHE II, a musical entitled ‘Club Soul’ took place on 13th and 14th April 2007 at the Victoria Memorial Theatre. Both events drew praise from the audiences.
INITIATIVES IN ENTERPRISE
The school’s first venture into business enterprise, the ART ROCK CAFÉ, was officially declared open on 13th April 2002. In step with the then- current fad, Art Rock Café’s speciality was bubble tea. It is a modest business run by pupils after school hours. To provide more opportunities for pupils to develop entrepreneurial skills LE SHOPPE was conceptualised and officially opened on 8th April 2005. Yet another manifestation of business enterprise in the school is THE WARDROBE equipped with a wide selection of period and dance costumes available online for loan to other schools.
